Paula Velez is a Colombian visual and sound artist whose practices involve acoustic instruments, microphones, sound-machines, video, and illustration to address issues such as ecology, sustainable economy & urbanism. Her creative processes explore liminal spaces, creating temporary nomadic projects both autonomous & participatory. For example, community based projects such as Laborincondelmar. It apprehended the ecological realms through developing sustainable & social ecological practices to preserve the mangroves in the Caribbean Colombian coast. Projects such as Ark0, Terrik0lab, and OSWASH, are part of a body of research exploring the embedded relationship between Urbanism, and ecology, by the collective development of transversal & libertarian practices in different socio political contexts.
She has most recently focused on sound as it traverses the primary landscapes of her research in ecology, philosophy & sentience. Currently, she is interested in improvisation, sound as a form of energy circulating in the spaces between spaces. She is presently directing her first documentary.

    Me alegra que te haya gustado el performance. Me hubiera gustado hacer una presentación breve antes de empezarlo. Como hubo un retrazo con la hora de inicio tuve que precipitar el comienzo sin explicar, para los que no entendían, que el performance eran transmisiones en vivo desde varios paises además de nuestra transmisión de audio y video. Gracias por tu comentario. Y mucho ánimo para tus pesquizas en el ámito de la edición de video en vivo.
