Field and Sentry Post – Conservation, Appropriation and Responsibility

Field and Sentry Post – Conservation, Appropriation and Responsibility

Hansen House > 07.06-14.06

Since the beginning of time, mankind has had a multifaceted relationship with Nature, which includes actions of discovery, documentation and even appropriation for its needs, alongside the desires to achieve utopian harmony with Nature, to protect the ancient landscape and biological diversity, and to recognize the supernatural power of Nature itself. Four “fields” have been created on Hansen House’s terraces: the house, the garden, the vineyard and the wild. These four fields reflect the range of man’s presence in Nature’s different landscapes. These fields function as “circles of belonging” – from the familiar and ordinary, to the more distant areas in the wild that we visit only rarely. “The sentry post” is also an integral part of the ancient field: the harvest wes collected there while also serving as a sentry post that watched over the boundary between the agricultural area and the wild. During the Jerusalem Design Week, the sentry post has been transformed into a kind of “pantry” that manages the surplus crops and creates a contemporary bank of “heritage seeds.” Onya Collective among other selected designers from different fields of activities, seek to express the various circles of belonging that comprise nature, ask questions about them and provide new interpretations of how we experience the familiar and distant spaces around us
