sketches of transhuman memory.

Tomás Bartoletti introduces the project that he will develop in January in Patagonia (Contra Almirante Cordero, Río Negro). Paleontopoetics was selected for the art-in residency program Barda del Desierto, based in a rural school, and seeks to explore the enduring construction of ideas about the Patagonian desert, Jurassic memory, and paleontology. By navigating through the intersections of histories of scientists, travelers, and indigenous communities in geological scales, Tomás will traverse the natural and cultural territories of Patagonia, and the way they interrelate with each other, creating a trans-human landscape.
