This participatory installation offers an emergent, personal reflection on Venezuelan diaspora and memory crystallization. To learn more about the process leading up to the installation check out my Behind the Curtain guest post or visit my blog, the. An encounter with an archive: a wunderkammer of memories, an altar to nostalgia and timelessness. This archive consists of landscapes of the city, the beaches, the mountains, and agricultural fields that I remixed using style transfer — a specific classification of machine learning Figure 2. On the perimeter of the installation are four pedestals with unique prompts for writing love letters.
They are provocations to consider themes of nostalgia and diaspora. At the center of the space, hangs an 8-foot-tall chandelier comprised of crystallized vellum and Venezuelan currency. Underneath it sits a large bowl filled with a solution where participants can offer their love letters to become crystallized. A mix of atmospheric projection, dynamic lighting, and ambient sound creates an ethereal, otherworldly atmosphere — each scene altering the space and engaging spectators to linger and be lost in the experience.

The scenes would change every sixty seconds with individual parameters for the color of the lighting, placement of the DMX fixture, and choice of projection and sound. More than just individual parts, as a whole, the experience was designed transport visitors into a refraction of my dream-like memories of Venezuela, which exists in a sacred place outside of time. This intermixing of archival media with objects of the present creates an intergenerational link between myself, my ancestors and gallery visitors.
Part of sharing my ritual process with others was creating an environment that represented the magical qualities of my nostalgia for Venezuela. These memories, filled with fleeting images of crystalline waters and quartz crystals, conjured a sense of the sacred that found its way into my installation. In a recent talk at Google, artificial intelligence researcher, Ali Rahimi serendipitously stated that machine learning has become a form of alchemy.
Resembling colorful pointillism, this new image was a vibrant: highlighting the circular features of the tapestry to create a provocative dream-like representation of Venezuela. Of your resolute Orinoco and in your plains.
You stand out with your thriving impetus. With your iron, your gold and your diamonds. Visitors would enter the installation from an outdoor breezeway, through an open door with two-sets of floor length curtains. Upon entering they stand on the outskirts of the magic circle, and can see a pedestal with a prompt and writing instructions Figure 4. At the center of the pedestals hung the chandelier sculpture, and the bowl where participants could deposit their offerings.
Framed as love letters, the prompts mirrored my own romantic nostalgia for Venezuela, and the conversations I had with family members and Venezuelans navigating diaspora.
The pedestals had one of the following prompts Figure 5 :. Write a love letter to a place you can no longer return to. Escribe una carta de amor al futuro.
Underneath each of the prompts was additional instruction that described the necessary steps to complete the ritual:. Even today these majestic creatures captivate and amaze us. They appear in our movies and fantasy novels, and abound in traditional and virtual role-playing games RPGs. Dragonlore recounts the stories of dragons from Europe, Asia and the Americas, from the sea serpents Leviathan and Nessie to Lewis Carroll's Jabberwock.
This richly-illustrated book examines dragons in modern culture and the natural world, including the pterodactyl and other saurians, whose fossilized bones were inexplicable and awe-inspiring discoveries. And don't forget about the Komodo Dragon, the largest lizard alive today.
