a real pixelstorm-submission:

A work from a series of experimental digital scans mixing old ethnographic images (in this case Inuit tribes of Patagonia) with contemporary holographic prints. The images were produced mixing chance, control and challenging the technical possibilities of my scanner. The image act as a surreal distorted cultural snapshot, an abstract clash of "virtual words". The glitchy (disco-like!) digital one related to machine errors and the faulty ethnographic one where "other" cultures are historically represented through dubious photographic conventions.
