Normally Irene climbes the buildings in her home country of Brasil without using any safety equipment, but for the ALL CAPS 2023 festival she made an exception. It was still exciting to see her rappelling down the side of this former Unilever office building when making her art.

This artwork comprises of three texts that are meant to make the viewer think:
 1. How big is the debt of developed countries in the 3rd world?
2. The effects of colonization still persist.
3. Can be no peace where there is inequality and prejudice.

In between the Latin alphabet text she wrote in pichação, which is the old Brazilian art of wall-writing: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Picha%C3%A7%C3%A3o

During the festival, after Eneri had painted the first part the wall, there was a bit of unrest among the people living in the streets around the building. They where not happy with the artwork being in the view of their houses.
