    Intervention in the wall of  The Lisbonaire Apartments

    Space Intervention / Wall / 2011

    The purpose of the project would work from the graphic assets associated with traditional shops of downtown, we started by doing some research on the material for sale in souvenir shops that sell it as a typically Portuguese: objects, materials, symbols and shapes. Since this area of the city is rich in this trade, and since we are dealing essentially with touristical public, it seemed appropriate to establish this relationship. The words we select to work in space — Memória (Memory), Saudade (portuguese word for to miss), Amizade (Friendship) and Amor (Love) are the words usually entered on tourist souvenirs, are drawn or embroidered gifts and purchased as representative of Portuguese identity. The purpose of the project would work from the graphic assets associated with the traditional method, we used the material as doilies, like a lace towel.
