Ingrata Bergman – El Desierto – Spain

El Desierto is a 3D poem that talks about images and the power they have to oppress or liberate us. In this poem, in this virtual but tangible desert, a mirror body wanders through a liminal space where the horizon is everywhere but out of reach, trying to forget the way it sees and is looked at, trying to learn a new way to perceive. Meanwhile, the body changes to adapt and regenerate, far from the conquering pupil.


Mayte Gomez-Molina is a Spanish new media artist and writer whose practice is based in 3D animation, VR and digital video appropriationism as tools for expanded poetry. Her work explores the body as a political subject and perception as a social agreement. She is currently working as a researcher and animator at Karlsruhe’s Institute of Technology.
