The chronological journey leads us from life in arms to life in the new rural living space, tracing the events that accompanied this transformation. It starts with the moment of arrival at the so-called pre-grouping points and the Transitional Village Zones of Normalisation (ZVTN), later called Territorial Capacitation and Reincorporation Spaces (ETCR).

Persisting, staying, and passing through are the actions that demonstrate this process of adaptation and appropriation, which gives identity to new living spaces.

This textile book consists of photos, which were sublimation-printed onto fabric and collectively intervened with embroidery in the village of San José de León, Mutatá.
