The artist was invited by alg-a lab (indipendent cultural place) in Valadares, Galicia, to set up a participated project about collecting and sharing memories in order to better undestand this place. Creating multiple subjective layers on the city and reconstructing the collective memory of the residents, it is possible to rethink the future and fill the fragments of the city. People were asked impressions and ways of perception of their surrounding.
After days of conversations and collective walks, some thematic groups of memories were suggested by the citizens and were collected in an interactive map with 78 cards displaying photos, videos and sounds recorded during the tours. It serves as an online living archives of memories.
