Spanish term or phrase: las partículas humans cuyos restos suelen condensar lo mas desprestigiado
Chilean academic talking about photos of insane romantic couples

it's the use of "condensar" that is causing me problems here.

encapsulate or embrace


Explanation:
would be nice in your context.

Another possibility: comprise

I like Heathcliff's suggestion, but the literary nature of your project, seems to need less of a technical approach.
