FOSSIBILITIES – ( fossil & possibility)
The project from the speculative design category aims to present a series of sculptural objects on an inverted timeline. FOSSIBILITIES will be the remains of futuristic organisms preserved in a permanent material. The perspective of the inverted timeline (archaeology of the future) is to consider a cross-sectional set of factors affecting environmental change.
in this case, artistic research concerns
– local cultural bestiaries and myths
– challenges of the local environment
– study visits and queries on history and culture
– psychology of fear and imagination
– speculative scenarios and impossible mutant animals/creatures
The end of this process will be shown in the exhibition in the Faculty of Bellas Artes in UPV in the second half of July.

The lands where Rafol de Salem is located have been inhabited since prehistoric times, as evidenced by various ceramic remains found in the serreta (mountain range) of Rafol. But as a village it has its origins in the period of Muslim domination, due to the type of land found there: clay. The place was called the clay workshop, which in Arabic was known as Raf-al-giz and the Christians as Rafalgeps.
