The work simulates the society of two small urban structures: the guard house and dog house. In Third World cities it is very common to see this combination in higher socioeconomic neighborhoods, which shows the main interests of the artist: urban determinism. The urban architecture, planned or spontaneous, has a conscious or unconscious semiology that describes the society, providing experimental archeology in which the elements, instead of being found and studied, are created to be tested in the field of artistic research.
The artist chooses to establish a mimetic synthesis between the two elements, giving them the same materiality and taking it from the same urban environment in which they are a part. The modules are made from concrete slabs that simulate field measurements and blocks of common sidewalks, as well as their same texture.
Two ordinary elements turn into a sort of urban monument that is not a source of pride. By virtue of being produced whith concrete, the work generates the feeling of firmness when seen at a distance greater than 10 m. While its construction does not meet a standard of structural stability, it must be observed in its fragility at close range.
