This abandoned building has since been cleared of it's estimated 1,630 people, including 468 families and 316 children. Bittencourt had this to say about her work, "My intention was to show a symbolic and a physical barrier, the decay of the materials, the dignity of the people who survive behind them, and the decay of a system that doesn’t integrate its inhabitants into society."
