Project description: Tamaguchi Park relates to Tamagotchi, a toy from mid-90 of XXth century, the first one to address the question of educating children on care and responsability through direct feedback from an artificial pet „fed” and”caressed” by its young owner. We wanted to create the analogic relationship between the caring user and an artificially created landscape on a sandy slope facing the beach in BatYam. The intervention is therefore composed out of two physical elements; the water producing installation, the „park” and an accompanying educational program for kids from local schools. The shortage of water is one of basic political issues in Israel, a country oriented towards the land but almost entirely ignoring the potential of the sea, thus with one exeption which is the one of largest desalination plants in the world. Since year 2008 watering of private gardens in Israel was forbidden, aswell as limits of water for municipal gardening. Our aim was to directly link the individual and group action with the effect, so the users of our installation wouldn’t deal with another statally given good independant from their will and responsability.
