The motivation to create Nest is to expose a conflict of which we are not taking charge. Development is detrimental to nature. The dunes in Concón, in Valparaiso, Chile, are fast-changing, the consequences of the real estate plan in the zone are now clear. Ten years ago, the area’s landscapes were different; rural, empathic with nature, and coherent with the resident population, now it is evident that the urban development and the commercial purpose given to the balneary lead to its destruction of all life in it.
