Correspondencias is a research project, a publication and an exhibition. The goal is to document urban developments as a marker of place. In my research I investigate the perceived value of my hometown - Cancun, Mexico - as a place which is perceived to have no historical context within Mexico and the world. Cancun is seemingly only popular context is provided by visitors, who feel entitled to represent it as they experienced it. A facade of a place via manicured experiences. Defying expectations of viewers that encounter information about Cancun is at the core of this project.
