The project raises parallels between natural transformation processes and those provoked by the artist in his artistic creation. Based on the direct ob-servation of surfaces worn or impoverished due to erosion, his interest lies in extolling the structural richness of certain emotion-al enclaves and others loaded with history and symbolism. It is the analytical transla-tion of space which allows him to develop a plastic process whereby the leitmotiv is the constant modification of forms in which an error appears not to cause damage or be a setback but is, rather, a valid and desirable business tool. The wide variety of piers along the Nervión Estuary invites us to study these frames as fragmented landmarks detached from their past function, a fragmentation translatable into serial compositions like the polyptych, whose modular network allows it to com-bine the countless states of these concrete skeletons.
