De allá pa acá
2021 (graduation project)
Some microbes that live in lithium can stay alive once extracted, and might still live in our devices. De Allá Pa Acá (trans: From there to here) follows a microbe’s journey from the Atacama Desert to the lithium battery powering your laptop. The microbe serves as a vehicle to tell the multiplicity of stories of the desert; from it’s cosmological creation to the necropolitics during the Pinochet’s dictatorship.
