Rota is a small town on the South-West coast line of Spain, in the Province of Cádiz, Andalusia. Its nearly 30.000 inhabitants make their living mostly from three cores: the nearby located navy station, building industry and tourism. The latter is clearly seasonal, and when the economic crisis of 2008 made them loose another leg, they have tried ot stay balanced on 1,5 feet for the last 10 years.
During my art residency there in January 2017 at Pinea Linea de Costa I experienced this sleeping marvel of Andalusia. Not as a struggling city who had seen better days, but as a lost playground of the grown-ups who may return one day and celebrate it once again. And not only from April till October.
