Criatório 2020

Criatório is an annual contest for artistic creations in Porto. This City Hall program gives financial support to 25 projects from all over the country, bringing them to Porto to develop and materialize. As its name states, Criatório is both about creativity and about territory. It is primarily a contest about art and all the freedom it implies, but it is very specific about the location in which it should happen.

Exploring the idea of the relationship between infinite and finite, and of a twisted territory that forces itself in, we looked for the Moebius Strip as a materialisation for this concept.
A Moebius Strip is a never-ending surface with only one side and only one boundary.

This year the City hall is supporting more projects, separating them in two main areas: Creation Projects and Spaces for creation. With that in main, and to reinforce that somehting has been changed in the usual program, we designed two moebius strips, that live inside one another, much like the two areas that are being supported.
