Magellan and the Peoples of Fire and Sea


Creation and curator – Alvaro Veraguas David Urtubia

Magellan and the Peoples of Fire and Sea, designed by the Chilean agency AL SUR.REAL, documented how the native peoples of southern Chile welcomed Ferdinand Magellan’s fleet during the first circumnavigation.
From a free application available for mobile devices, visitors made their way through an augmented reality circuit of images displayed in watercolours and showing how these transhumant peoples lived; particularly how they navigated, hunted and what rituals they performed.
