A plane that Levites on the ground, that changes for natural and human actions. A man who left signs that appear, disappear and reappear as the presence of the human being disappear of the world, nevertheless, they remain in the memory, interweaving in the collective imaginary.
Shadows of casualties
Heaviness, shadows that lays on the landscape reminiscence of the accidental loss of thousand of civilians
The clearings in a forest of shadows symbolize the brilliance of hope in a better future and the presence of divinities.
Shadows of shelters
The shadow thrown by the heavy body that levites, is the pause, the shelter and protection inside the immensity of war.
The void irrupts and fractures the collective landscape, generating cuts in society as a result of violence.
The shadows of casualties praises the darkness that's left by the war, while the shadows of shelter shows from the half-light the defense of the territory
