How to export: culture and opulence? (2013)
This project was developed for the Terra UNA residency program, combining visual and textual investigations. Using a 4×5 inch camera, photos about the use of land inside and outside of the ecovillage were taken. And through the reading and rewriting of two texts, a critique was produced on land as a product. Culture and Opulence of Brazil by its Drugs and Mines… (1711), by André João Antonil was compared to How to export to Brazil: a practical guide on the import process to Brazil (2006). The result is the overlay of arguments about a country’s potential in the face of different economic exploitation methods which, even separated by almost three hundred years, maintain similarities.
