Art in Golf follows the concept of showcasing golf courses as eco-museums for the enjoyment of earth Art where new horizons are explored by reinventing what is traditionally known to celebrate contemporary art and thus, reach the public eye. My proposal an ephemeral project to raise awareness on the endangered species, the turtles. The art work portrays a pilgrimage of various turtles that inhabit the island. The drawing will eventually vanish through time as a representation of their future extinction.

Puerto Rico is home of a largely diverse Caribbean fauna including the five species of sea turtles that nest on the shores of this tropical island. Turtles are estimated to be around 100 million years old, as old as dinosaurs, but today most species are in danger of extinction. I n The Rough: A Tour of Geometric Ecology,  aims to bring attention to these fascinating animals of Puerto Rico by accenting the golf course with large scale drawings of the geometrical patterns that the various turtle species exhibit on their backs and bodies. My project strives to be a multifaceted exploration of geometry and ecology; patterns drawn on the golf course are linked to a virtual ecological tour that connects these natural ephemeral geometries to the fading reality of the turtles.
