Alejandro Tamayo

23 September – 6 December 2015

Alejandro Tamayo is creating something out of thin air. Literally. Making the invisible qualities of the space visible, Alejandro monitors each vitrine with an electronic ambient thermometer that displays the rise and fall of the heat captured within the enclosure. This minimal gesture revealed only by a fluctuation in the numeric digital display challenges the interpretation of the ordinary, pointing to the everyday unseen changes in our environment.

Alejandro Tamayo is a PhD candidate in Visual Arts at the York University. He holds an MFA from the Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Bogotá, Colombia, and a BEng. (Production Engineering) from EAFIT University, Medellín, Colombia.
