The workshop aims to carry out visual exploratory work using video and photography, through the construction of the object and the description of its preparation.
Through the cinema, we will work with large scale units using two exercises: “autopsy” and “tapa” as its visual essence.

Who is Luis Urculo.
Luis Úrculo (1978), a designer, trained as an architect, develops his works in an open format of small and indefinite architecture. “I no longer know what architecture is and what an architect should do”. Always interested in all that is peripheral to architecture, the processes, developments and approaches that can be manipulated, sampled and translated into other scales, adapting to the composition of the project, creating new scenes/ experiences / expectations not contemplated previously.
