Every itinerary comprises three parts
The first part consists in the artist’s journey itself. The concept of the journey is defined by Maria Rebecca Ballestra as research method in which she physically and psychologically confronts conditions of the environment, therefore she explores and experiences possibilities of different viewpoints and processes.
The second part is formed of an artistic production indicating the insights, experience and research result Ballestra made during the journeys.
In the third part is invited a researcher to contribute with a written text regarding the geopolitical or anthropological contexts of the corresponding desert.
