Utinga e Ver-o-Peso (26/4)

(see english below)

No segundo dia de workshop Objetos da Floresta os participantes foram ao Parque Nacional do Utinga e ao Mercado Ver-o-Peso. A ideia era observar e documentar tudo aquilo que achassem relevante sob o olhar do design, além de definir materiais e conceitos com os quais queiram trabalhar.

No Parque, fomos recebidos por uma borboleta azul – espécie em extinção – e também vimos um macaco solto na mata. Caminhamos até um lindo igarapé de águas claras, onde pudemos lavar os pés depois de uma trilha cheia de lama, devido às chuvas desta época. Os participantes destacaram principalmente as texturas e formas que observaram ali. Já no Ver-o-Peso, que é considerado o maior mercado da Amazônia, os participantes observaram mais a organização dos produtos e as cores.

À tarde voltamos ao SESC e discutimos a percepção de cada um, as oportunidades que perceberam e a ideia que pretendem desenvolver no protótipo.

During the second day of workshop, the participants went to the Park of Utinga and to the Ver-o-Peso Market. The idea was to observe and document everything that they thought could be usefull to design, besides defining materials and concepts which they would like to work with.

At the Park, we were received by a blue butterfly – a species in extintion – and we also saw a monkey  in the forest. We walked till an “Igarapé” (place with water), with super clear water, where we could wash our feet after stepping on the mud, result of the rainy season. The participants noticed mainly  textures and shapes. At Ver-o-Peso, considered the biggest market of the Amazon, the participants enhanced the organization of the products and the colors.

In the afternoon we went back to SESC and discussed each one’s perception, the opportunities they saw and the ideas they want to develop in a prototype.
