Empenas In_adaptadas, um horizonte possível

This project wants to establish a relationship between blank walls and what we usually do not show publicly (the Private), exposing and confronting these two realities in order to create questioning. The public space is the basis for the development of this reflection, and it is through the study and analysis of blank walls that the project begins. A photographic survey of the forms/characteristics of Oporto and Torres Vedras blank walls gives rise to an intervention about these same walls through the projection of a video, creating a new reading and a redefinition of the form of the horizon.
