This manifesto lists the ecoscenographer’s core values, recurrent themes and new insights on creativity and contribution to the community. The whole designer’s manifesto has the dual purpose as a reminder that help keep my practice as ecoscenographer alive – always evolving – but also to share with others as guideline. Listed in a natural flow that helps the reader to follow the journey to wholeness, the principles demonstrate how the notions interrelate.
As a passionate artist who is becoming more knowledgeable about her way of working, a manifesto benefits my practice by declaring publicly the fundamental concepts behind my philosophy. Centering myself and my practice clearly and concisely in this manifesto helps me draw a line between what I am willing to do and not do, not only in my creative practice but also in my personal life as seen deeply connected. It is satisfying to decant the essence of my practice in these few principles. It helps me focus on my intentions and can form connections with people who might be inspired by my words. I cannot make changes by myself and this is a powerful reminder. I put forward these principles as guiding principles and not absolute truths open to expansion. They are the celebration of my creative practice as seeker of wholeness, as artist, designer, and woman.
Note: The manifesto’s typography is based on Corbett’s ‘A Craftivist’s manifesto’ while the principles number coincides with the twelve green petals of the heart chakra, as we have seen that the human heart has a great part in becoming a whole being.
