In 1986 Albufera lake and the Dehesa de El Saler forest (Valencia) were declared Natural Park. However, the nature of the park lives together with some constructions and residential buildings that are still being used, built in the 70’s,as a part of a construction project during the Franco times, based on the idea of promoting summer-sun-beach tourism with a large urban plan that would occupy all the natural area of the park.

The initial plan was never completed. It was paralyzed by protests and activism of residents of the city of Valencia. The current landscape, a combination of buildings and nature, is the basis of the uniqueness of the park. “Territorio Boom” is the documentation of those buildings and structures that remain in permanent conflict with the limits of the forest and wild dunes.

The artist evokes memories of her childhood, about a territory that is still intact, and its relation to the evolution and current status of the natural park.
