Marta is working on a literary project about place and how it shapes us and our relationships, with secondary themes of the body, sex, mental health, family, science, pop culture and history. Through this project, she reflects on she why we do the things we do, how our identities and memories are formed, and what role our contexts play in it – with a focus on the generation born in the 80s and 90s in Spain.
