Ruins

2009 / Portugal / 60min

Fragments of spaces and times, remains of eras and places inhabited only by memories and ghosts. Traces of things which time, the elements, nature and human action have modified and still do. With the passing of time everything that was cease to exist, eventually becoming into something else.

Places that no longer make sense, that are no longer necessary, that are no longer fashionable. Forgotten, obsolete, stark, empty places.

It isn’t necessary to explain why they were created or why they existed, nor the reasons why they were abandoned or transformed. We’re only promoting an idea, somehow poetic, about something that was and still is part of this country’s (hi)story.
