Words change and alter their meaning according to the spaces they occupy, when located in different places of the city the urban landscape is altered by meanings that highlight the events that the history of these places collects. Words in these places become elements that burst the images of the places that at the same time are part of a collective history.

 THE VISIBLE
Walk around the city, emphasizing that moment of life in which we all are part.

THE INVISIBLE
