De Iván Castiñeiras Gallego installation 2016
“Beaten Paths” is an interactive audiovisual installation which proposes a reflexion on the concept of the border as a place of waiting, passage, prohibition, control and violence; an established and defined line that a human being has to cross. A smartphone app based on a geo-localization system will be used as an interface. Spectators will be able to circulate and move in a virtual place, using the app as a transmap device; to enter a raw reality, that of the refugee camp in Calais called “The Jungle.” They will witness a portrait of the everyday life of a group of people waiting and trying to cross their last border.
The Kombos family, Ammar Mr Raad, Ahmed, Abdulfatah Ibrahim, Muhammad Ameen, Ignacio Canosa, Rajwa Tohmé, Daniela Delgado Viteri, Lawand Attar, Mohamad Sayamand, the Castiñeiras family and all people who generously participated in this project.
