In the beginning there was nothing. And that nothing was neither empty nor indefinite: it was self-sufficient. Nothing was more than enough, it filled everything. […] The tubes are a singular mixture of fullness and emptiness, of hollow matter, a membrane of existence that protects a bundle of nonexistence.
Amelie Nothomb, Metaphisique des tubes, Editions Albin Michel. Paris, 2000
Alternatural does not correspond properly to any specific category, but is complexly related to all: It is sculptural and architectural, a landscape intervention that invites us to reflect, through experience, on our relationship with nature. Compressing the space in which it is located it generates a gap, a dark void that must be filled with meaning through one's own experience. As a membrane that connects a meadow (the artificiality of a domesticated nature) and a forest (the wild) it offers a temporary transit from where we can recalibrate such limits, dismantling our binary vision and helping to blur dualisms such as nature/culture, human/animal, territory/landscape and inside/outside.
