Description

| Sangre | Tierra | Oro | Agua | is an audiovisual experience and performance using electronic music and generative video created with code. The images, developed using javascript, WebGL and Hydra, are projected to a series of concave angles using projection mapping to build a narrative through motion graphics and visual illusions. In parallel, the projections are accompanied by a set of songs composed in code and performed using Sonic Pi. The music and the visuals are inspired in the contemporary history of Colombia—as well as my personal and intense relationship with the country. Rooted in political and sports events, this project also uses footage and audio from historic moments to create the music and the visual components. Overall, this piece discusses the juxtapositions of violence and peace, of urban and rural, of hate and passion, and of hope and despair that exist throughout Colombia’s story.
