I am a Chilean interdisciplinary artist based in New York City. My work explores the relationship between personal memory and cultural practices of remembering. Working with found footage –with anonymous stories–, I create multimedia installations, video sculptures, and transmedia narratives that examine how technology, media, and memory affect and transform each other, creating models of remembrance that are culturally shaped. Using techniques such as projection mapping, algorithmic manipulations, and augmented reality, I combine found memory objects like home movies, vintage photos, and postcards, with physical objects ranging from intimate dioramas to immersive installations, blurring the boundaries between physical and digital. My latest work reflects on our mediated relation with nature and how in the intersection of digital media and eco-literacy, we can explore how these technologies mediate the creation and circulation of images that inform how we see and know nature. As humans reshape the landscape, we forget what was there before.We live in a garden of ghosts surrounded by traces of more-than-human histories through which ecologies are made and unmade. And we are haunted by imagined futures; dreamworlds of progress that have devastated our planet, and apocalyptic futures that seem to be taking shape today.
