Information

In this work, Ulises Matamoros, manages to place a synthetic "solar" circle (made of nylon) in the center of a small lagoon in his community of Santa Inés Ahuatempan (Sierra Mixteca, Puebla, Mexico). In this semi-desert region, the distribution of water does not depend on artificial structures (governmental, from the state), but on the cycle of nature.

 

The circle, is placed on the waters of the lagoon in the rainy season when the water becomes abundant, and leaves it floating without other intervention. Passing the cycle the rains, Ulysses returns, to find a dry lagoon. Then it is proposed to look for the circle, almost invisible, since next to the earth it dried up to integrate in it.
