Broken Ground

Broken Ground is a particular landscape that can be found in the city periphery, where a different organization and interaction between man and space is visible.

The idea of borderline and the observation of the social and visual differences connected to the urban space were the starting point of this series, aiming to highlight the landscape and interaction between people and the place they inhabit, thinking of ‘borderline’ as something directly connected to people and how their conceptions and behavior about territory and possession leads to separation, misunderstanding and conflict.
