DISPLACEMENT LINE SERIES
It is a project that involves interventions with coins with the purpose of making remarks of the history of the countries I meet. The series does not have a closing date because I work with historical data, according to them I make modifications. Currently I do interventions in walls where I play with the visual aspects of attraction of worthless money (literally). Sometimes I make maps that show the origin of this project in relation to the United States immigrants.
