33ºSouth is a three-channel audio-visual installation that juxtaposes the cities of Sydney (Australia) and Santiago (Chile) using a custom made data mapping system and database. Both cities lie on parallel 33ºSouth, and are post-colonial urban spaces with complex cultural and political histories. This project aims to set in motion a whole set of relationships between these apparently unrelated urban spaces by collapsing their histories and geographies into a different imaginary and virtual place with its own cultural narratives.


This project is a collaboration between new media artist, Sarah Waterson and media anthropologist/videomaker Juan Francisco Salazar. MaxMSP programming by Jon Drummond.
