Project description online

The result of a seven months investigation about the violent situation that is happening right now in Colombia after the FARC peace treaty, but seen from an artistic perspective using the immersive medium of VR.

The Artwork is created through the investigation and interviews about the systematic killing of social leaders in different parts of the Colombian territory.

Is the interpretation of the use of the collective memory as a method to remember violent acts, that we as a society do want to forget but in the end is necessary to establish a dialogue and a debate about how we should face traumatic episodes as a society and do not send them into the oblivion.

The Artwork has a short documentary to put the viewer in context, then a VR (Virtual Reality) experience of the interpretation of a memory and finally a debate between the artist and the participants of the work.
