|| TEXT DESCRIPTION FROM PARTICIPANT ||
“Until the late 19th century we have been accustomed to see old historical sites nearly gone into nature. A kind of illusion between nature and human will. We are astonished viewing this endless illusion along the centuries. But now we see another disappointing horrible story of the extinction of both humans and the built heritage. Lives and cities are disappearing unnaturally. That demolished places of ego will not be carried out or have new polished nonhuman places or will not be restored.
These places will be living with natural additions with natural and intellectual needs and will dissolve into nature by time together with the left broken walls-openings-arches… Nature will give life and passion and leave tracks behind and will let all the atmosphere gain some life and character. These ruins have the potential to rebuild a new natural life throughout their transformation, a new era of re-enlightenment.”
