Jorge Mañes

MA work

Throughout modern history, due to social, environmental, and economic purposes, factories have been set up in very specific locations. Increasingly, mass production and globalisation have led to a more drastic geographical localisation. My work focuses on exploring alternative and more flexible processes of manufacturing, in response to this immovable situation.

Ultreia is a project where El Camino, an ancient pilgrim route in Spain, is transformed into a 700km production line. The recent commercialisation of the route is challenged by on-site manufacture of alternative objects and performances, through a portable and self-sustainable factory that is able to relocate itself everyday, taking advantage of the specific locations, industries and people encountered en route.
