Maybe it is not a coincidence that human always chooses to stay close to the water as the water always works as an energy source or even connects you to the other matter. But what if it is a space between two waters?

Project: Between Two Shores
Curonian Spit is rich by two shores – Baltic sea, that is washing its eastern border, and Curonian lagoon, that separates this narrow strip of land from the mainlands. By being right in the middle of it person is never too far from one or another shore – one or another source of energy. Maybe it is not a coincidence that this land that sometimes resembles a whole different planet is divided by such an interesting ratio. If you share the land evenly to every person living there you would get a very close number of π (3,14159), that somehow supposes the golden ratio of human and his space.
Here space is supposed to be heard, smelled, absorbed, felt with all the possible senses – eyes do not show enough. Here you need to hear the whispering of the ancient forests, the wailing of the girls for the old Griekinė linden tree or the waving of the amber bay, telling the great history of this sacred place.
You need to feel anxiety created in the air by the alien birds and to find inner peace by meeting the sun in one shore and to bid her farewell in the other.
