Favela Offshore

Video-projection, 2018

10 minutes length (loop)

The video work recreates an originally steady landscape picture of an offshore platform with the superposition of a favela image. Through video edition processing, the elements in the landscape gained motion to connect both structures over a surrealistic fictional-reality.

The visual clash of the two architectonical structures shed light on the contradictions carried by the industrial society’s large scale production systems, which resonates in the physical and conceptual manifestations of the globalized market that create enormous social gaps. The result is an immersive high definition “picture-with motion” video installation.
