En Confluencia, mediante la contraposición de imágenes vistas en tres proyecciones en paredes contrapuestas, busco ahondar y reflexionar sobre cómo estas relaciones, y aproximaciones al espacio y al entorno, son fuentes de procesos de post colonización. Por un lado el Canal de Panamá, como eje económico del país, en el centro una habitación con un aire acondicionado encendido, y en el otro extremo imágenes del Lago Gatún que es la reservorio más importante para el canal, otrora el pueblo Gorgona, desaparecido para la construcción del Lago

El contexto esta presente de manera protagónica, pero la ¨modernidad¨ pareciera alejarse o querer huir de ella de manera contundente. Mediante el contraste imágenes, texturas y los procesos que las generanse crea un eje narrativo tensional para ahondar en estas contradicciones que confluyen, y así generar una reflexión más allá de la propia ciudad.

The landscape and the territory are containers of history, their use and disuse define cities and its inhabitants. The architectural constructions and their relation to the nature of the place work as conductive threads to generate reflection and thought.

In “Confluence”, by comparing images shown in three projections on opposing walls, I seek to delve and reflect about how these relations and approximations towards space and the surroundings are sources for post-colonization processes. On one side, the Panama Canal -as the economic axis of the country-, in the center, a room with air conditioning turned on and on the other side, images from Gatún Lake, which is the most important reservoir for the canal, where there was once a village called
Gorgona, that disappeared due to the lake’s construction.

As in most Latin-American countries, Panama is a city of high contrasts, not only socioeconomically, but also in relation to its surroundings.

The context is present as the protagonist, but “modernity” seems to forcefully move or run away from it. By contrasting images, textures and the processes that generate them, a tense narrative core idea is created todelve into these contradictions that converge, and therefore, generate a reflection beyond the city itself.
