To show how the commitment of the shoreline communities and visitors significantly contributes to the conservation of the natural and cultural values of their wetlands and how this commitment is shared universally in different sites and at different scales.

Both the Iberian and Central Asian saltscapes, located at the centre of their respective regions, represent the heart of virtually unknown regions for the general public, with strongly symbolic values, even more so because of the presence of salt. Also, each of the selected sites represents the heart of the local community, as they constitute the scenery and backdrop of their lives, from which they attain their livelihood and from which stories and legends emerge.

conceives art as a vital process which involves people and is nourished by little daily accidents. This process leads to revolutionary ideas, since it implies the possibility of new and fresh proposals. Her work is a succession of personal learnings, experiences and memories which she understands as a game in evolution. She speaks about the public space and reflects on what is public art, made in public space. The work she has carried out was generally conceived as a participative process and based on cooperative work. Thus, her latest works for example, have been, on one hand, public and community art: large outdoor murals and a memorial, that is, participative and interactive installations. And on the other hand,...
