Δ [Agustina G. Wetzel]
Title of the Work: Δ
The Delta Δ project arises from the need to think and do from isolation. The mandatory quarantine led us to produce in other ways, to relate virtually, to think about the dynamics of surviving isolation and to change our perspective on the everyday and on the space we inhabit.
We take this situation as a starting point and we set out to make a video archive, as if it were an archipelago or a delta, videos that revolve around the question of island identity. We design a triad of videos around "being an island" that seek to be triggers for productions, each one in relation to a concept: 1) Origin, 2) Spaces and 3) Beyond.
1) The possibility of being an island, by Maia Gattás Vargas, explores the relationships between volcanoes and the formation of marine islands.
2) Wild Life, by Agustina Wetzel, works with the constructions of tower buildings to think about urban conglomerates and gentrification.
3) Rubble Moon (third movement) by Rodrigo Alcón Quintanilha thinks the space race led by commercial logos.
Explanatory note: This application is from Agustina Wetzel on behalf of the Delta Project made up of Maia Gattás Vargas, Rodrigo Alcon Quintanilha and Agustina Wetzel.
