Colombia

Statement

Álvaro Rodríguez Badel is a media artist from Bogotá – Colombia, a country he has been discovering and has influenced his work due to its biodiversity and magic. He creates all his works underlined by the idea of representing nature through digital mediums and exploring how logical or computing processes understand the world around us. How do computers or logical systems perceive or represent nature? Having a mostly self-taught understanding of computer software, photogrammetry, 3D printing, or any other contemporary digital imagery technique, Rodríguez Badel ends up playing around with and exploring new ways of representing the world, always trying to land in new unexplored universes. That is how gigantic 3D Scans of mountains or waterfalls end up being printed with such quality and precision that you face yourself against a new way of perceiving nature through the eyes of technology.
