Abstract
If our discovery of the landscape comes from our comings and goings into it, how do we face a landscape in front of the sea? It is not a farmed land along which we could walk, so what instruments do we use to apprehend this landscape? Historically, the area of the Strait has been a dialectical place, an area where tunas, ships, birds, dinghies... flow. Signs have gone towards one side and the other. This way, the Strait of Gibraltar owns a particular idiosyncrasy where the diverse cultures that live in it have to overcome the peculiarity of their own written culture in order to communicate with the others. The luminous and sonorous signs allow determining our position in this unfathomable landscape and give us the possibility to communicate this information to the rest, in a codification effort that improves communication. Despite the efforts to make difficult the physical step between countries, electromagnetic waves circulate across without dealing on borders. But, do these signs issued in both shores mean the same thing in both parts? The area of the personal identity and the intersubjective will construct this polyphonic landscape, where everybody will aspire to have something that to say.
