Obscuras Fronteras

Félix Lazo

Santiago based Chilean artist Félix Lazo's work relates to perception and cognition, looking into how we relate to what our senses receive and how we make sense and meaning from this information. His recent projects create sonic and visual environments using animation, video, sculptural and sound elements, using a variety of technologies. In writing about his Autopoietic Systems Lazo describes them as: multimedia interaction and retro-feeding machines (software+hardware) that generate an audio and visual response in direct relation to visual and auditory stimuli from the environment.
