Project Title: Invisible permanence of the monument

Proposal Summary: My work creates a large concrete refuge between space and us, creating a dialogue about what surrounds us and what we experience, how the daily changes and spaces are correlated in modern environments, in how we inhabit, cohabit and appropriate them as if we lived a future condition, posing a sharp questioning about how we relate in this time and what to do with the present.
