This work was developed during a three month residency with Residencia Corazon. This residency space is based in La Plata, about 40 minutes south of Buenos Aires. The work considered information evident in the city such as graffiti and architectural forms, particularly the relationship between the older houses with the newer, encroaching apartment blocks.
