Todo se parece a su dueno

30.00

I was walking around my former neighborhood in Popayan in 2009 when I suddenly saw a car that was exactly the same color as the house in front of which it was parked.

They had the same kind of beige color, unusual nowadays. I took a photo and nothing else happened until a couple of years later, I saw another car ressembling the house next to it. Gradually I started seeing this pattern everywhere I went: similarities in the models of cars, house types, color palettes, combinations, fences, roofs, wheels…

All of this led me to wonder about how objects and places adapt to people and vice versa, according to the place of origin as well as to intrinsic and unconscious cultural aspects. Several years after, I went to live in Lima for a couple of months, and started seeing something similar: there were a lot of Volkswagen cars, and all of them were similar to the houses they were next to. Cars mix well with houses in many cities in the world, and these similarities change depending on the country, city and culture.
