This project utilizes nature, architecture and memory as a point of departure. Former defensive forts of Puerto Rico are a part of its historic sites which are reminiscent of the collective memories; they feed today's tourism.The historical military site ‫"‬El Morro" and its landscape, sound intervention of in-site recordings and historical texts in two languages, English and Spanish are used as a means of relating these two colonial periods in the history of Puerto Rico. Sound is composed of layers and functions as a trigger of the underlying collective memory.
