Solo show at DCP – Discursive and Curatorial Productions..
University of California, San Diego (U.S.)
A site-specific installation that articulates material relationships around the concept of the artifact, processes of technological obsolescence, and the historical representation of macroscopic and catastrophic events.
The installation is composed by two rotatory cardboard sculptures featuring documentary images printed on transparent vinyl, and originally taken at Chicxulub crater memorial (Yucatan, Mexico). The monument commemorates the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event, in which three-quarters of plant and animal species on Earth became extinct, including all non-avian dinosaurs.
Complementary, the installation includes two 3D prints rectified with bitumen of Judea (an asphalt used for simulating material aging), rendering a satellite view of hurricane Katrina (2005) and Flagstaff’s Meteor Crater in Arizona.
