What if our Eldorado, for us men of the 21st Century, was a world in which biological diversity would not be threatened but rather profuse ? A world of plant and animal abundance in which humans would have their place in balanced environments. The proposed installation plays with the ephemeral and the perennial, staginga totem living for more than 270 million years : the Gingko biloba. The project consists of planting a large subject along with a flower procession endemic to its base. Within the setting of Eldorado and throughout its duration, it is the construction of a beacon structure on which tarpaulins and braiding of colored bands are installed, allowing the tree and its garden foot to be seen by transparency. These bands on the lower part will be greetinf papers, like the Haïku, which may be the subject of participation by residents and schoolchildren.
