Construcción de las Casas en las Ciudades de la Memoria

This is an artistic research upon existence and memory. In my head, I have been building for a long time now, collecting from my closest ones, a city where are all the houses that no longer exist can be, houses where the memory has happened. I'm recreating it now inside a heterotopy, a virtual stage. This city grows with the new houses that they share with me. I will build a story there, a novel, upon all the words from the beloved, vanishing, almost gone through time, memories.

Construction of the Cities of Memory as a theoretical discourse, is an exploration of the approaches of the space of Gaston Barchelard in two of his books "The poetics of space" and "Dialectics of the inside and the outside," of the theory of the Immersive Reality and the Heterotopies of Michel Foucault, as well as a prolongation of previous investigations. The research base its pilars on the use of virtual reality, 3d modeling, architecture, cinema, installation, literature (upon the final novel) and documentary.
