Oro Negro 1996

A group of works/installations related to oil prospecting for five major museums of contemporary art in South America (in Venezuela, Columbia and Mexico), "Oro Negro" reveals all the real and imaginary riches of this new black gold. Labyrinths, artificial landscapes, arborescence and seismic maps of mineral resources embody the domains of energy and technology. Their high-performance networks are magically recreated in virtual imagery.
