In the workshop Square inside a Square taught by Andrew Weed in the city of Oaxaca, we examined the changes in the color of one same door in three different moments of the day. The exercise was to abstractly represent the three variations with colored paper cut-outs. The format's limitations resulted in a process of exclusion, where priority was given either to luminosity, hue or saturation. These decisions were made with the fundament that the 'correct' representation is that which recreates the door in the most recognizable way, even if it isn't the most realistic or loyal to reality.

As an application, I generated a guide to some of the cultural institutions in the center of Oaxaca City. The map locates and represents the different facades of the institutions with the technique learned in the workshop. The representation method permits finding the entries of the institutions easily, and remember these with a more contemporary connotation.
