It’s Christmas time and many of you might be thinking on getting a new gadget for yourself or as a gift for a loved one. It could be a new version of something that you already have (IPhone, IPad, or laptop) or a completely new technological device. Before buying new technology, we don’t usually think about what will happen with the old things that we’re leaving behind.

After several months living in London I started to think about how fragile memory is in terms of remembering that place called home. When time goes by it seems that you start reimagining and remembering places differently, with a sense of nostalgia but at the same time with no experience of the everyday. I think that our idea of a place is based not just on past experience, but on the experience of the everyday. After realizing that the sense of the quotidian has gone, I’ve been looking for other ways to engage myself with Santiago, Chile, my home town.
