Artwork / Slow Violence
- Abstract: This piece proposes a space to rethink some of the long-lasting effects, and formulates a visual exercise on the geological transformation and destruction of living ecosystems. We want to create a visual that reflects on the great acceleration of these changes (Anthropocene) and their repercussions on climate and biodiversity. A visual and living fresco that encapsulates the unstoppable disaster before our eyes, that devours and consumes nature in an exercise of terrible beauty and where we contemplate, in a very sensory and almost tactile way, the effects and changes produced on the earth’s surface.
Using techniques to photograph frequencies outside our visible light spectrum (ultraviolet and infrared) and time lapse explores ways of seeing complexities, forces, and natural phenomena that are not obvious to the human eye. We want to work on the technique to take an exploratory, deep and conscious look and make visible the invisible forces of nature (erosion, thawing, floods …), observing it through a different perspective.
- Biography: Hamill is a studio formed by Anna Díaz and Pablo Barquín, a creative duo specializing in the development of innovation projects based on experimentation and the mixing of emerging and traditional techniques, to create new visual communication formats. They carry out artistic and technological research in the field of visual arts, live shows and the exploration of light and sound. For each project they develop their own tools and inventions, combining digital and analog effects in totally unexpected ways. They mix physical engineering, lighting design, moving image and visual programming to expand your imagination far beyond the screen and open it up to more tangible experiences.
