Beyond a shelter, the house is also the place of intimacy, a territory away from the public space. Momentos e Máculas is a personal quest on the relationship between public and private space, which here, more specifically, the city of Guarulhos in Brazil, where I grew up. Faced with a frenetic urbanisation and dozens of buildings constructed every month from the earth, the city has suffered a deep metamorphosis. My interest lies not on the "geopolitical" consequences of this phenomenon, but focuses instead on the cultural, sociological and human impacts of this transformation.
