Construxion Humana

Mexico City is a floating metropolis. Formally known as Tenochtitlán, the city was constructed on lakes and rivers. Cement transposed over years, seamless.

There is a particular human tendency to construct, to mimic, or mutate the self into a manifestation of the environment. Within an ecosystem of rigid structure undermined by the chaos of volatile powers, memory rumbles below the pavement.
