Elena Pedrosa

Elena Pedrosa is a visual artist, journalist, cultural manager, teacher and editor. "I learned to investigate structures to neutralize the armor that hides the essence. The image is for me a tool to think, discover, feel and express."
The water of venus
This work, carried out in the mines of Mazarrón, Murcia, focuses on the devastation of the landscape by human hands, through the dystopian ideation of life on another planet. The poetic reflection is that water remains in the essence of everything that exists. 

Laura Brinkman

He began his introduction to photography while studying psychology. After graduating, he enters the Faculty of Fine Arts, specializing in Audiovisual Communication, in Hamburg. It is there where he begins to broaden his knowledge in the field of photography, breaking away from his previous works. Currently, his works are based on series of photos presented through new media (photo-objects, projections...).
Diptych Alberca -Earth
The observation of a nearby nature is the working space, the starting point of my work and the quarry for materials from which I draw to integrate them directly into the small format diptych-piece composed of a video of the reflection of the water of a pool and seeds, earth or leaves. This same gaze towards the everyday is conducive to the creation of works with a marked protagonism of the footprint.

Rafael Galan

I am a self-taught photographer, I have been working as such for more than 25 years, I have worked in the press for a decade and currently work as a freelance. President and founder of the PhotoEstepona Collective.
The water tree

...The trace of water
Plastic work where I relate the absence of water with the disappearance of life. Where there is water, there is life. As long as there is water, there will be life. Hence the importance of this in our planet.

...Asphalt, (No dumping)
From the Asphalt series made in Los Angeles (USA) "No Dumping" is a sign to let people know that they should not pour or throw products or things down the sewers, unfortunately due to a collective lack of education and awareness few people take the issue seriously...

Water drop
This work was created to symbolize the drought and to raise human awareness about the misuse and waste of water, as well as its consequences. Both we and our planet are composed mostly of water, therefore, it is essential that we learn to value and respect it. Water is a natural good belonging to everyone and for everyone. It is essential for LIFE.

Roots - Performative dance
Roots are a symbol of anchorage, at the same time they are the most flexible and fragile part of a plant. They look for water through sound communication with the earth. Where are my roots?

Gu!atari Saul Wes and Laura Maillo

Gu!atari is formed by Laura Maillo, philosopher and butohka, and Saul Wes, liminal artivist. Their joint practice is defined in terms of improvisation, butoh dance and sound experimentation.

We live in the mouth of an extinct volcano, fertile and with water in the subsoil. We are surrounded by massive avocado plantations that will turn this entire area into a desert wasteland. This piece is the fruit of the act of resistance that means living here, from listening, minimal intervention and austerity.

 Nacho Rejano and Ana Sedeño

Nacho Rejano has a degree in Mathematics and a PhD in Fine Arts and teaches Robotics and Mechanical Sculpture at the Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of Malaga. He collaborates with video and visual artists. He has published the book De las máquinas pintadas a las máquinas que pintan.

One dancing: water
The body is text positioned as a medium between bodies; body and choreography are a technology for the production of subjectivity. In the piece there is a journey through the specific states/stages of water - Ocean, River, Lake, Whirlpool, Flood - with which to celebrate the element. The visuals will confront the relationships between the concepts of water, mirror and image (camera).


Gachy Rey

To listen to GachyRey is to transmute energy through sound. Her voice is a mixture of feelings that ends up expanding the soul of the listener, the combination of sounds that arise from the depths of her heart makes us travel through unimagined strata and connect us with the most sacred of our being, from experimentation, GachyRey takes us by the hand through her singing and leads us to recognize ourselves in the magic of music. Thanks to the color of his voice, he invites us to feel and explore the path of healing, vibrating in the harmony that our body needs.


Francisco Villalobos

Visual artist, musician and independent researcher, PhD in Fine Arts from the University of Granada. In his work he explores the possibilities of experience linked to the development of different discourses and procedures, the relationship between forms of expression and perception. He is interested in the aspects that converge in a more direct way on the configuration of the personal or community experience: the symbolic, the collective and individual imaginary, cosmovisions, forms of observation and knowledge, mythology, philosophy, hermeneutics, art, comparative religions...
Mnemosine Trilogy (Documentary)

José Carlos de Isla, Paco Ortiz (Sarao Films)

Paco OrtizDirector of the documentary Historias del agua, born in Huelva in 1978. Graduated in Audiovisual Communication from the University of Seville, film director and TV producer,
Historias del agua (Documentary)
A journey from east to west, crossing the south of Spain from the source of the Guadalquivir to its mouth, serves as the backbone of this documentary that seeks stories related to water, flora and fauna, traditions and festivals, trades, economy, architecture, sports and history and how to live without water, with water, by, for, on, under and from the water, and its people, who together with the landscape, are the true protagonists of this audiovisual diary.

A/V experimentation


CaraduSanto's creations are a journey full of ups and downs where the subdued sounds progressively move to more deafening ones. In his music you can notice the influence of his time as a singer and guitarist in hardcore bands, the oscillators sound like sharp guitars screaming in dark nights. The music always accompanies him in the downcast moments of life with which he creates something beautiful from its depths.

Agua Amarga - Live Modular

The Lacemaker - Luis Lablanca

The Lacemaker has configured an atypical and more than personal profile thanks to his training and experiences in the field of graphic, plastic and performing arts, sound and artistic collectives, ecological and environmental awareness, participating in festivals and exhibitions of various disciplines.

Without a fixed methodology, guided by instinct, chaos and creative impulse. Co-creator and partner of the collective Oigovisiones for more than a decade. His work is based on the observation of the cycles of life and existence itself, of territory and memory. Of nature and its processes, listening, feeling and integrating while walking immersed in it. He treats each project with artisanal care, bringing a new vision, avoiding the gratuitous, taking care of the detail and finish of his pieces. Generating a discourse, weaving a dialogue between materials of natural origin that he collects himself, and industrial materials that he uses for his pieces, sharing and proposing a space for reflection on the emergency and climate change, the natural impact and the footprint left by humans.

Researcher of frequencies and vibrations of nature, he explores the origin and purity of the sounds that surround us through contact microphones, field recordings and capturing environments, creating soundscapes that inhabit and move between experimental, noise, dark, drone, ambient and improvisation.
- NQH2O -
This piece is born from the need for water, from the scarcity caused by the destruction and control exercised by human hands over nature, by consumption and the lust for power, playing gods, deciding for us, negotiating and rationing vital supplies for life due to their dastardly and selfish interests.

"I live in a wildly natural environment, where life overflows, where water flows through waterfalls, pools and streams from a spring, where a Roman aqueduct, through a conduction system, as if it were arteries, redirects the flow that flows into a beautiful ditch that is the main source of life in the village. In addition to the lack of much needed rainfall, in the months prior to summer, during the same and almost until early autumn, those responsible for opening or closing the tap, decide to close it and divert it to other towns in the area for the consumption of the massive tourism that comes to enjoy their vacations, at the expense of leaving us without water to those who live and care for the environment so they can enjoy it and share it on the networks with the hashtag #aquisufriendo, ironies of life."
