Welcome to this special artist journey from the Disconnected Experiences Garden of Cuba. This work is the result of the first República de la Gráfica (Republic of Graphics) residency and an experience of collaboration and writing shared with Darien Sánchez. In Oleaje we have tried to discover routes to make fragmented and symbolic cartography of Cuba from a performative practice that mixes editing, narrative, and representation. The process has included the exploration of the capacities that digital technologies offer us to compose from the image and the word. A set of maps and artists’ books are connected with immersive spaces built-in virtual reality, based on writing as a provocation.
