This image is part of a work called "Homes and remains", a series of photographs of small plaster sculptures that I built, of houses, pieces of stairs, beds and other isolated structures. They are images around the idea of home, distance and what remains of a house when we leave it. A ruin remains in our memory as much as a monument. This is a work in progress that started in 2019 when I was living in Spain.
