More than an Object, its Shadow
(2018 - ongoing)
Manifesting iteratively in publications, performative readings, lectures and radio interventions, More than an Object, its Shadow is the umbrella project where I research frailejones and the páramo.
Páramos are high altitude forests of the tropical Andes, of which Colombia has the largest number. They are complex ecosystems, key due to their immense biodiversity. It is almost impossible to define them in a short paragraph, but surely necessary to recall when thinking of affective exchanges with more-than-humans.
