urban and natural landscape carries on its body signs, anthropogenic
interventions that intrigue the imagination, and arise questions
about the memory of a forgotten past. The mind imagines the passage
of time and the inevitability of collapse. Without any trace of life,
inert matter gives the impression of a suspended condition.
Unfinished buildings, abandoned mines, materials subtracted from the
bowels of the earth, fragments that create a new territory, a
landscape of absence. Places of doubt and deficiency, between the
state of being and not being, they constitute a strange collaboration
between human and physical intervention. Their discovery by the gaze
of the wanderer cannot retrieve forgotten memories, however, it can
inscribe on their body new memories, redefine what stands there
hushed, waiting for a gaze, an interest, a breath of life.
