Red Riera Baixa (2015) Single channel video, book.
Red Riera Baixa (2015) was a community based project inspired by the physical narrowness of the streets in Barcelona. By linking these private terraces, Red Riera Baixa aimed to encourage public communication among the inhabitants of a neighbourhood. Since Riera Baixa is inhabited by 85% foreigners, these unique interactions drew attention to cultural experiences previously concealed.
