19:00 Keynote Lecture. Landscape: a mesh to capture phenomena. Catherine Mosbach (Landscape Architect, Mosbach Paysagistes)

Extract from a conversation with Agnes Daval :
What you call writing is defined as a mesh finely woven to capture phenomena and, if possible, to record them, to retranscribe them in material and make them available to people. A mesh like a fishing net thrown into the sea in the hope of harvesting some small wonders of the world. I must say that many times I have been rewarded beyond my hopes. Our imagination is far from exhausting all possibilities and we must seize the chance to be surprised by what we do not yet know and what we could intuitively achieve. These are the foundations of an always-open dialogue, exposed to temporalities - in the sense of the weather and the passing of time - and to the appetite of curious small creatures, who, like me, can grab.

Writing is a tool but not an end in itself. It also carries with it the contradiction of wanting to 'master' vast territories and in the end leaving them open to biological impromptu. Drawing is the filter or script that allows a particular organism of developing to be displayed and spread. For the slowness of living processes to be identified as such, it is to be highlighted with contrasting, accelerated rhythms. It is appreciated and evaluated by the differential that it opposes to other rhythms. It is this condition in which one appreciates the progression of vegetal formations of several natures, which together set up the different environments
