"We invoke rest. We invoke contemplation. We invoke non-action and grant the earth and the body the right to rest. Supported by the materials that the territory has given us, we create a space of magical objects that accompany the earth in its rest and its regenerative action. We build and yearn for a non-anthropocentric relationship with the earth, the great collective body, and with ourselves. We invoke our capacity for expanded vision. That allows us to see beyond human ambition, of material benefits in the short term and interests exclusive to our species. We invoke nutrition over dry food. We invoke the regenerative forces that lie here latent in this territory that rests on crops, that nourishes itself from its own capacity and consciousness of interest in nature. "
