Trace

02.11.17 15.11.17

Santiago Ocampo is a Professor of Fine Arts with specialization in Engraving (Santa Ana Higher Institute, Buenos Aires, Argentina) and he was one of the artists selected through the Semillero 2017 open call, thanks to which he presented his work at the ´ace studio.

Trace is an interactive and generative installation in which the viewer is part of the piece. The work is based on the information that one leaves when entering the Web, the searches on the Internet that one makes, the geographical position, the operating system that one uses, the type of computer, etc. All this information, of which one is not generally aware, leaves a trace, a mark in the immense world of the digital.

The installation was projected on a wall of the Políglota Room, using a device placed on a pedestal about 2 meters from the screen. The spectator places his/her hand on the device activating the recording of the movement of his hand that will be animated when he moves his hand away, leaving a trail.

ARTIST STATEMENT

My intention is to be able to generate works in which the viewer can immerse themselves, get lost and achieve through the union of technique and aesthetic sensibility, generate a sense of wonder and hypnotism.

The Latin America's Paris

Buenos Aires is Argentine Republic's capital city. With 15,000,000 inhabitants, it is one of the largest cities in Latin America and one of the 10 most populous urban centers in the world. Its cosmopolitan and urban character vibrates to the rhythm of a great cultural offer that includes monuments, churches, museums, art galleries, opera, music and theaters; squares, parks and gardens with old groves; characteristic neighborhoods; large shopping centers and fairs. Here we also find a very good lodging facilities, with accommodation ranging from hostels to five-star hotels of the main international chains. Buenos Aires also show off about its variety of restaurants with all the cuisines of the world, as well as to have cafes and flower kiosks on every corner.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located. The neighborhood also has six squares, one of which pays homage to Mafalda, the Flea Market, shops, restaurants and cafes like its neighboring Barrios de Palermo and Belgrano, with which it limits.
