Live Forever is an installation made of floating colored wooden sticks.
Located in the catalan Pyrenees the installation shows a 20 minute walk.
which starts at a little well that is known in the area and that
is visitied to get drinking water.
From the well a small blue stick, Blue 1, active, floating in the air might catch your attention.
In short distance another blue stick, Blue 2, passive, connecting to the first one and creating pictures.
If curiosity made you walk you arrive at a crossing of two trails.
One leading to a wide lawn. There, very far in the back, almost invisble,
a silver stick, breezing horizontal in the trees.
You need to climb over a fence to reach Silver 3.
The installation seems to end already with silver 3.
Red 4 is technically in sight but way to far away to be actual visible.
But the lawn has a direction itself.
Walking uphill along the lawn you reach a fork of branches with Red 4 showing you the way to continue.
The following steps are Yellow 5, Blue-Yellow 6 and 7 , Red 8, Blue 9 high in the trees, Yellow 10 and Red 11.
The distances between each steps are getting longer along the way.
And you need to be careful not to overlook a step.
Red 11 leads you to a wide open lawn.
Uphill walking with no direction something is slowly changing.
In this moment you realize the sound of the installation by the change.
Its been the wind in the trees and the birds and animals living in the forest.
But the sound is changing.
With each step louder and louder you hear water running over stones.
Considering the wells contentual connection to the creek.
The sound of rushing water tells you the way at the last crossing of the paths.
If you follow the sound of the creek you arrive at 12.
12 is a cluster of 19 colored sticks that float above a small creek.
A Creek in the montains that is a row of little waterfalls.
The center of the cluster is a little pool made of rocks.
There one of the sticks touches and plays with the water.
This is the end.
And the end is the beginning.
