?latin0 is a hyper mediated identity that will come to being through its exposition to the curious spectator / voyeur. The performative space becomes the IRL arena or scenario in which this virtual being will have the chance to materially display its mannerism(s) around people, test its own sociality, explore the gap between what is programmed and what glitches.

Juan Pablo Cámara - ?latin0 16:9

?latin0 is an android who likes to dance cumbia.
He stares at people, seeking for something he cannot have.
He is flirty but
awkward, calm but restless, joyful but sad.
He needs attention, but he won’t
give too much.
He wants to show himself, but he is also shy.
?latin0 is aware of something, something he can’t really grasp…

In this work, Juan Pablo Cámara explores notions of identity construction, artificiality and seductiveness. He constructs a fictional character in an attempt to playfully deconstruct his Latin American self. In the body of an android who twerk-dances and lip-synchs regional hits, he will try to seduce each member of the audience and build up an atmosphere of both intimacy and estrangement.
