Ananganá – The Andean Pavilion is a video installation presented as part of Bienal Sur – Pensamiento Salvaje exhibition at Casa Nacional del Bicentenario in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is composed by a series of 3D-printed sculptures based on recordings of seismic waves at active volcanoes in Ecuador, the Galápagos Islands and Colombia. Sound devices recorded the volcanic activity, and custom software converted the data to computational 3D models. The result is a series of hybrid objects that reenact momentary encounters between a volcano, a human, and a machine revealing a situation in which human-environmental dynamics are constantly redefined.
