Bogota is a gated city.

From pristine images designed to protect the homes, through the electricity meters, to the parks, are behind bars.

The feeling of insecurity, often justified, and also reflect a culture that revolves around it, has led its citizens to give the appearance of a golden cage in which every window, every door, or the perspective of each streets become the collective imaginary illustration of the citizens about their relationship with the city and with others.

Palm trees, swans, anthuriums, boats, spider webs with "live with a catalog infinite geometric shapes, creating an aesthetic of paranoia, which takes place for the expression of the taste of each inhabitant.

Each gate has some who chose, and I am, so I want others to see me, I stand by my neighbor.

It is a living story that speaks both to pedestrians as potential aggressors, and that these bars have no other purpose than to protect the other, put a barrier between us and strangers, between us and the dangers and bad intentions who roam our streets.
