The principle of experimentation has been decisive in our way of proceeding every time we have had the fortune to participate in the world of Fallas.

The theme of Fallas is usually determined by last year's events. Currently, events seem to happen a rhythm very difficult for us to assimilate and reflect what is happening.

How can we reflect this fact, the impossibility of representing the changing actuality? Could the monument renounce to have a form? Could It have a mutable form? We propose a monument susceptible to adopting different forms, a kind of three-dimensional canvas that can be modified daily and support the message desired in each moment.

By being able to work different people on the same support at different times, attributes of participation and play are added, and the concept of authorship is diluted. External collaborators can contribute their vision giving shape to the canvas. They thus become co-authors of the work. We are very grateful for your involvement in the project.

Changing the form during the Fallas, the viewer can repeat the visit and modify the experience. The diffusion networks of the participants will complement ours, increasing the total repercussion.
