During an art residency in Madrid, together with the collective Coco-D, we elaborated an experimental project that ended up with a workshop, exhibition and a publication. We proposed an emotional and open to interpretation manner to investigate a city, and to embody this investigation into an actual object that best represents it. The project consisted of two parts. First was exploration, consisting in dérives around the city trying to look at it from a different angle, searching for and collecting fragments of its tissue that for some reason draw attention of the eye and have the capacity to tell a story.


In the second part, experimentation, we created compositions with these fragments and embedded their stories into a material shape of a common local object, a traditional vase in this case. During this phase we experimented with moldings, casting, resin and pigments, mixing materials and expecting the unexpected.
