As for all our design products it is always clear the equation society-city-game. Cactus is an extroverted, demonstrative and uninhibited object revealing an allurement to nature and environment.
It is the organic figure of its own fiction and deception.
It is the sign of a deserted city, where the landscape is locked in, blocked and trapped by a cemented society.
Perhaps it wants to experience only its performance.
It does not want to be the necessary, crucial solution.
It wants to reveal its unknown, hazard and doubt to show its real function.
We have interpreted the binomial between accumulation and distribution of water summing up and breaking down expressed and decoded natural processes to be widespread through innovative technologies and processes.
In this way Cactus becomes a social function instead of a representative figure, a bridge between relationships, a collective game and a symbol of contemporaneous city.
