Life is a unique opportunity, isn’t it? And I’m always seeking for new and different experiences to enrich my life! Specially those kinds of experiences which can widen my perspective. Faber seemed to be one of them with offering multi-disciplinary atmosphere around a specific issue in urban planning, when I applied for. However, when I arrived at Faber, Olot and spent a few days here, it appeared as something more than an experience. Not only staffs and director of Faber are so enthusiastic about what they do more than just a responsibility, not only trips and meetings are so energetic more than just a part of the residency plan, not only other residents are so wonderful accompanies in all our discussions more than just residents, but also Olot itself, has more to offer than just a middle-size town. It gave me the opportunity to think about phenomenology of independency discourse in public sphere while walking in the streets. The streets where are taken over by symbols, flags and lights of being. I felt I’m at that point of time and place in the history which would be unforgettable. I felt myself as a part of all the dreamers who are trying hard to build the future. I felt myself green like the landscapes, blue like the sky and yellow like the streets.
