Magellan and the People of Fire and Sea

Authorship and Commissioner – Alvaro Veraguas David Urtubia

The exhibition MAGALLHãES AND THE PEOPLES OF FIRE AND SEA, designed by the Chilean agency AL SUR.REAL, documents how the original people of southern Chile received Ferdinand Magellan’s armada during the first circumnavigation.
Using a free application available for mobile devices, the visitor goes through an augmented reality circuit of images displayed in watercolors alluding to the ways of life of these transhumant people, in particular how they navigated, hunted and what rituals they maintained.
