Presentation Title:

  • Crossroads



  • The approach of this poster is signed by the personal experience with the crossroads, as a Colombian mestizo, between my Indian inheritance, represented in my contact with the corpus of knowledge and science maintained by our shamans (curacas, werjayas, mamos, taitas, etc) and the corpus of knowledge represented by my western education and contact with technology.




    Do not go gentle into that good night,
    Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
    -Dylan Thomas


    This poster revolves around the encounter of western and indigenous ancestral cosmo visions, represented in the search of a mestizo individual at an artistic, aesthetic, intellectual and spiritual level. It depicts the comings and goings of an artist who has chosen to enrich his inner world in the sources of ancestral’ abyayalan knowledge and visions and who has found in electronic art a space to establish a dialogue between his western and ancestral formations.
    The work in minga (collective, lending a hand), from the aboriginal tradition is closer to collaborative and transdisciplinary work proper of electronic art and multimedia. The new forms of narrative are making a full circle, without knowing it, and arriving in realms proper to oral tradition.
