The Pulse of Earth: A Close Encounter with Echoes and Voices in the Americas
This program opens with a welcome from our host institution, the UAGM Museum. Soon after, Joaquín Fargas’ performance will take place, effectively connecting Garden Buenos Aires with Garden Puerto Rico.
The performance will attempt to showcase the Earth’s lifeforce as it relates to our human body, where information is dispersed in every cell, while also being interconnected as a whole – a sort of crypto body. Afterwards, an interactive section with the artist will take place, where participants download an application and send one-word-messages to the mythical Earth Pachamama/Atabey or to the Universe, creating a word cloud diagram that will be projected to the audiences of both Garden Puerto Rico and Garden Buenos Aires.
Then, a round table will take place with various guests from Garden Buenos Aires and Garden Puerto Rico, including an open discussion around the festival’s theme and the Garden’s program proposal. Right after, we will be transported to the Hispanic Reading Room at the Library of Congress in Washington DC, through a virtual experience under the care of Dra. Giselle Aviles.
The program ends with a live local exchange with artist Carola Cintrón Moscoso and her artistic installation at MCHE. The work of Cintrón Moscoso mixes physics and geographic properties into art, and she will also share an ongoing project related to the transformation of landscape properties into sounds.
