Blogs de la ruta del sol (Blogs from la ruta del sol), 2012
In thinking about how the vacation blog has become the paradigmatic online representation of the “exotic” landscape, I have been researching the various vacation blogs written about Ecuador’s La ruta del sol, the coastal highway along the Pacific coast of Ecuador. My project includes a series of cyanotypes created from printed blog pages and cut into stencil “negatives,” that mimic the structural forms of the blogs they reference. These prints are juxtaposed with performative videos adapted from the bloggers’ observations and musings. As the protagonist of these videos, I embody both the local and the outsider in the recounted narratives.
