“Is it your Dream?” Inquires into the relationship between the individuals and the environment; focused on a group of different families who have settled and live in Matavenero, an eco-village located at the hillside of a mountain at a height of 1.000m.
Individuals who live in harmony and in close contact with nature, with the intention of being able to develop social systems where there is no growing anonymity. Their personal convictions took them to live in an alternative way, far from the urban areas in a completely ecological style.
Is it your Dream? Establishes a relationship between the subjects and their habitats, which in turn represent an extension of their lifestyle, and suggests a different way of thinking and living. I am especially interested in the relationship between people and their homes and the way in which they adapt to the environment in order to be able to ally with it.
For the making of this project, the main feature which attracted my attention was the complex relationship among the children and youth with the environment. A sad way of life, with a youthful angst caused by the relative isolation in contrast to the personal satisfaction that their lifestyle entails.
