Magellanic Tapes

In November 2017 Castelló made a residency in the south of Chile and traveled with a group of artists from Punta Arenas to Isla de Hornos, the southernmost point of the earth, making field recordings and interviews with an AIWA V Walkman -Sensor, a Philips dictaphone of microcassettes and a Zoom H6.

Each Tape was used then as material for a woven tapestry, making sort of a diary about a trip to the end of the world, a love letter to the gale and strong winds, a map of an imaginary place, a silent river – a dialogue between the artificial and the natural, between voices, ghosts and absences.
