is an editorial that contains the hole process of a project that started within the nature. I chose an animal according to my interest. And because the initial purpose was to work with the fact that there are many abandoned buildings in Lisbon I chose the cochineal, that lives always under a shell. It's shelter.

From the cochineal I became to wonder what was like the inside of one of those abandoned buildings, but I couldn't go into any I wanted to. So I wrote a story as if I saw the inside of an abandoned building in Lisbon, mental hospital. And tried to expose my imagination into 6 boxes. One box, one character that lived there. Six boxes that represent six imagined people and their story while living in that specific building, in a specific time.
