CORRESPONDENCIA / POSICIÓN INSULAR
[MAIL / INSULAR POSITION]

Series of 40 phographs taken on different crossings of the Magellan Strait, onboard Transbordadora Austral Broom S.A. vessels Fueguino, Patagonia, and Pionero.

These pictures were printed, folded, and mailed without envelopes from Isla Grande de Tierra del Fuego to mainland South America.

This mail and its monitoring were meant to explore the idea of proximity/distance based on the path followed by a letter (in theory, a few hundred kilometers) in order to reach the other shore.

Some took 28 days. Others, 60.

This mail was sent from and to Magellan Strait´s closest towns and cities. Río Grande, Cerro Sombrero and Porvenir in the island; and Río Gallegos, San Julián and Punta Arenas in mainland South America.

Mail was received by artists Patricia Viel, Bettina Muruzábal, Marcela Botella, and Paola Vezzani.

Insular Position was performed as part of Proyecto Magallánica.
