Wetland Stories

The installation project Wetland Stories: An Ontological Cartography is a narrative and visual representation of the everyday tensions between the global and the local; the center and the periphery in two wetlands in Costa Rica. Through the personal stories and experiences shared in Costa Rica Sara Wiederkehr constructs an ontological cartography that invites to reflect about the lived and built environment; the importance of (multi-) locality and (multi-) vocality and the role of social imaginaries in building the history of the people. Through a continuous movement the stories shared in this installation relate to the space, and it is in by relying in this concept that the singularities of the people, the images, the narratives and the sound are being connected.
