Nyon, Switzerland (GenevaLunch) – Natural skin defoliation? Spiritual cleansing? Or just plain dirty fun? According to one young mud bather interviewed by GenevaLunch, “It’s just mud. That’s all.”
Paleo revelers were invited to take a dip in a mud pool set up in the center of the Mangroove art installation. Mangroove, a virtual swamp of passageways constructed from lengths of mangrove limbs, is a joint project between Paleo and the Haute ecole spécialisée de Suisse occidentale (HES) (University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland).
After four months of preparation students from the HES put their skills to the test in the festival.
Students and festival volunteers paid tribute to the 40th anniversary of the Woodstock music festival by spreading the fun of mud as it was done in 1969 in Upstate New York.
According to the HES, the project is a “back to the earth” psychedelic inspiration and 100% recyclable.
