Survivor is a site-specific video installation that explores notions of expanded cinema to construct an audiovisual space that references the urban surroundings.
Placed on the rooftop of the School of Architecture, Design and Urbanism (University of Buenos Aires) two back projection screens juxtapose visual references to three important buildings in the city's historical, social and political life: the Jorge Newbery Airport, the Estadio Monumental (the biggest soccer stadium in the country) and the Escuela de Suboficiales de Mecánica de la Armada (the biggest center of detention and torture during the last military dictatorship from 1976 to 1983).
The three sites - located in urban proximity - are intertwined in the rooftop of the Architecture School that becomes a space to start a dialog and question the historical and contemporary role of these institutions.
The sound score of the piece (a composition of human voices and airplanes turbines) is mixed with the environmental soundscape of the air traffic coming from the airport.
Survivor was made in collaboration with Juan Pablo Ferlat, Gabriel Rud and Luciano Lasca.
