拆 [chai] To demolish, to destroy, to dismantle. Action scheduled to happen in large residential areas in Chinese cities such as Shanghai. The ideogram, sprayed on the walls, announces that soon nothing will remain. The recurrence and scale of these scenes astonishes the passersby. This is the so-called progress establishing itself with the rush of those who have no time to lose. And amidst those debris, almost as a final breath, signs of private life, now exposed, invites us to fill those sites with invented memories while we still can witness them.
