There’s an incredible amount of green areas in London. Since I came here I’ve been interesting in visiting as many parks as possible; for me this is an interesting way to see how different cities coexist within a major city such as London.

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.
