As part of the Salon talks at Art Basel Miami the Colombian artist gave a presentation on “Low Resolution Stories” whereby information can be transformed and a new story created by the interpretation of images based on low resolution… almost like a game of visual chinese whispers…!  One example he gave was of the story where a “reptilian” formed part of Barack Obama’s secret service bodyguard retinue … obviously later debunked.

 

Ortiz also forms part of the artists selected for this show at Art Basel Miami by the Casas Riegner gallery.
