On the verge of their disappearance, certain places work as memory containers and are capable of making us perceive and rebuild pieces of history and past experiences through their different layers of residual information that remains especially condensed on their walls.

These places offer the possibility to work with a very symbolic and valuable material, the landscape of time. In the presence of their images, we hope for it to provide us with something, some knowledge, some emotion, some feeling… before it vanishes completely or turns into something different.
