Route of Temptation

The main focus of this project was to study the old Portuguese colonies and bring to our days a product that represents these special treasures that the Portuguese discoveries left in the discovered countries.
In this work we analised the actual lifestyle of Macau and tried to translate it into the old blue and white 'Ajulejos' tradition, but this time using the new contemporary China icons represented in the island (mostly the game, girls and the casinos).
We used digital manipulation to create compositions aparently similar to the traditional ones, but full of new meanings to discover.
What once was known as 'Route of Silk' or 'Route of Spices' is now baptised by us as the 'Route of Temptation', the title of this tiles collections.

In collaboration with Joana Pais.
