Parada do Monte

This map was  our contribution for the exhibition "Quem somos os que aqui estamos", surveying the small village of Parada do Monte in the northern Portugal, an apparent ghost town. With the help of the local social worker, we were able to gather a significant amount of addresses of emigration destinations - mostly in France and Switzerland. The map is thus a collage of many places, "near and far", many landscapes and different  urban shapes.
