In this series, the artist explores the constructive poetics of houses built by migrants. These houses, for economic or experiential reasons, were never finished. The houses remain unfinished (in "obra negra") but insinuating what they could have become: the amorphous and hybridized structures are abandoned, and their particular pastiche of architectures is degraded by the passage of time
