For the migrants that traverse the storm
The Migrants is a project based on a real bird-migration history from 2014. The Golden Warbler birds faced adverse conditions due to global warming that generated storms on the coasts of Florida, which was their main destination. This caused the birds to alter their migratory routes, being forced to explore an alternative way through Mexico and Central America until arriving in Colombia. In its video version, The Migrants recovers the Amerindian technological gesture of adopting the point of view of the animal who must overcome obstacles by detecting magnetic fields and seeds with infrared vision. The video problematizes Umwelt relations with the technological and political activities that pollute the environment: walls, electric fences, communication antennas and pollution. We are a group of artists who work with mechanical, electronic and computer engineering techniques from the field of the arts.
