Uno para todos

2012

"Uno para todos" is part of the series "Extrañando México" ("Missing Mexico"), which includes projects inspired by the feeling being abroad.

Uno para todos puts you into a different perspective to the growth of Mexico City. Part of the urban landscape is a huge mass of constructions without regulation. Each house has history, culture and transformation.

The best way to describe this is to use an element all share. In Mexico, this is a water tank being on the top of each house, that literally exemplifies its content. The water tank now is a container of pens made out of black clay. It's on top of a cultural and historical base, books and newspapers. Each pile constructs a different history, like each home.
The piles and the number of them grows, like in reality the urban spot grows.
