Main square in San Javier (Spain) is a tough place with few elements. Nevertheless, a number of hidden but intuitive paths exist and are used daily by citizens. Our proposal draws that reality in order to make visible what really happens there.

People cross the square looking for shadow areas, using it as a meeting point, as a playground or just because they have no choice; but these ways of using the square are not evident at all. Hundreds of meters of tape will draw a costumbrist reality that will become evident ephemerally for 3 days; after this the tapes will disappear leaving in the city consciousness a vague thought about how its square is really like.
