Memories of Sand is a processual artwork. For its accomplishment, there was a call for the donation of memories (personal, borrowed or invented) about the legendary Urca Casino and a series of interviews in the streets of the Urca neighborhood. The testimonies crossed stories of the Casino from the 1940s, TV Tupi studios (the pioneer television Brazilian network that occupied from the 1950s to 1980s ), and the nowadays ruins of that building and the fantasies that they involve. Edited and printed on plates, through digital fabrication (3D printing), all those stories were taken to the beach. Stamped in the sand, they merge and dissolve into the sea. Like the memories of that place.
