Pablo Moura Letts "Researching nature"

Gold, to the date, is still one of the most influenceable commodities of our economic system and Peru plays a big role in the world mining system. Lately, Peruvian rainforest is being affected by this. For the last few years, natural resources in the Amazon are being exploited in an indiscriminate and illegal way. An uncontrollable situation that is converting the different Rivers in Amazon rainforest into a Metallics River, full of Mercury residues. The Gold separation process going on in the Amazon Rainforest, is a process based in the use of Mercury to create an Amalgam with the gold and separate it form the River. With a similar process, I create this unique prints. This works try establish a physical link between the landscape's reality and that imagined by its conceiver, including the manipulation of the visual construction and the limits of spectacle based on our assumptions of what an Amazon Rainforest landscape means to us. The results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted.
