El Bon Temps – Environments

On 2018, walking home from work, I stumbled upon the statue on Gaudí Avenue in Barcelona by Apel·les Fenosa titled “El Bon Temps Perseguint la Tempesta” (Good weather chasing the tempest).
I got a bit of an eukera moment looking at it, I thought of a game, a repetitive, cyclic game that could explore emotions and ideas such as loneliness, solitude, change or stability using reinterpretations of Catalan folklore and fables.

I wanted to use Mediterranean ecosystems as setting for the game and even though the Mediterranean is terribly endangered, its biodiversity still isn’t completely gone.

Pyrenees, Mediterranean jungle, salt deserts or dunes and beaches.
In order to get the feeling of being there and gather some visual resources, I had planned to go to several natural reserves, like the dunes on Delta de l’Ebre, but since covid-19 it has been impossible.
