The video Art piece taken in the ecological community Peñalolén, at the outskirts of Santiago, playing with surrealism and our train of thoughts as intangible of the republic, the video an abstract form and a dark parody of the classic nature documentary. It shows a mixed and new dystopian nature, with human intervention. We follow “Quebrada de Macul”, a small river and the only water source for the community in a dry landscape that depends directly on melting from the Andes, The presence of the liquid and its literal life. It comes with a deep reflection about our water, and scarcity that Chile might suffer due to global warming. The piece is also very autobiographical and shows familiar places, but somehow represents “Kuge Morgen”, at these COVID times.
