“PERPETUAL FLOW” Is a land art work that Jorge Rodríguez-Gerada recently created in collaboration with the LAVAZZA CALENDAR 2019 in Ouarzazate, Morocco. “Perpetual flow” extends over 37,500 square meters and was created using rakes, stones found at the site and 36 tonnes of dark gravel.
Running water flows between the fingers of two huge hands in a “perpetual flow”, symbolizing the ability to reuse water to create a greenbelt around the city and so protect it from sandstorms.
This piece is one of six art installations set within different environments, forests, deserts, glaciers and cities, featured in the 2019 Lavazza Calendar “Good to Earth”.
The photographs by National Geographic photographer and five time World Press Photo Award recipient Ami Vitale documented the nature art of Hula (Switzerland), Mantra (Kenya), Saype (Colombia), Gomez (Thailand), Millo (Belgium) and my project in (Morocco). These projects bring attention to some good news for the Earth, or in other words, the virtuous projects for reforestation, protecting biodiversity and the conversion of industrial areas into green spaces, identified throughout the world in partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), which can contribute to protecting nature and therefore the planet.
