Is a video installation about the now extinct lake Poopó, once the second largest in Bolivia. From a series of images taken by NASA between 2002 and 2016, the image of a fragmented lake that vanishes confronts the viewer with a long history of disappearance in Latin America - from the colonial genocide in Indigenous America to the continent's complex contemporary political and economical landscape - to question contemporary geopolitics, its impact at local levels and the challenges it represents for the future of the planet. The installation is accompanied by the piece Cantos de tierra by Bolivian composer Cergio Prudencio, performed by the Experimental Orchestra of Native Instruments.
