Idaira del Castillo writes that “From this experience, I have been assimilating concepts and collecting information, through my five senses, discovering – day by day – geographic and cultural singularities of this adoptive island. I have been processing the information and comparing it with my place of origin, finding common points and distant points, studying how, under similar circumstances, different paths can be chosen, and how there are common points that arise from the intuition of the islanders.“
