2005 | Polaroids: Aesthetic, Biology and Technology, Articulating Latin America at NYU

Burbano will talk about the ideas which conform the text "polaroids: aesthetic, biology and technology, articulating Latin America". These ideas were not planned to conform a text, but to link to a documentary production". Despite this, it is important to share some reflections of this research process on the complex relationship between art and biotechnology, and the multiple facets that this problematic field shows in Latin America. As an Assistant Professor part of the Art Department as well as the Technology and Society Group at Universidad de los Andes in Bogota, Colombia, his interests are working in a common space on the intersection between artistic, social and technological reflections. He has also studied cinema with an emphasis on documentary film making. Furthermore, he has been a guest researcher at Zentrum fur Kunst and Medientechnologie Karlsruhe in Germany (2004 2005)"

2005 | Contemporary Internet Art in Latin America at North Carolina University

Sponsored by: The University Program in Cultural Studies, The Cultures of Science and Technology Working Group, The UNC-Duke Modernity/Coloniality and the Geopolitics of Knowledge Working Group, and the Institute of Latin American Studies, ILAS Brief description of the presentation: This presentation analyzes recent experiences of net.art in the Latin American context, including collective net(art)working, the sense of immersion in the internet environment, and the concept of no-audience (no-audiencia): the fact that there are no observers, only participants of/in interactive processes. Attention is also given to the various readings that become possible because of the non-linearity inherent to the medium. Some of these points will be illustrated with examples from the work of Latin American artists."

2004 | Observations about Documents and Documentation at ZKM

Studied the concepts of an audio-visual genre based on the re-interpretation and new processing of audio-visual »documents«. The aim is to question whether the transference of these concepts to digital information is at all possible due to its documentary character. The aspects to be observed are various methods such as archiving, interpreting, and processing of the material. Two concrete project examples will be presented: Quiasma and Ways of Neuron. The Quiasma group is supported by Canada Daniel Langlois foundation. The interdisciplinary media artist and researcher Andrés Burbano is presently guest researcher at the ZKM | Institute for Basic Research more info
