These sculptures have little to no intervention in the existing landscapes because they reorganize elements present in them.

Unlike landscape sculptures, our desing reorganizes a process common in all urban parks: the process of mowing the grass.
the grass is grown
and then it is mown. . .
Using the mundane and quotidian act of mowing, social distancing clouds are drawn into the grass.
Because the design is based on the idea of re-adapting a process that already occurs, Implementing the project has practically no additional costs!
Since the design is so easily modifiable, the clouds can be reshaped to fit a diversity of uses depending on the current distancing regulations.
