Abstract

This position statement describes the transformation of an interactive installation from an instrumental piece of art and science pedagogy into a meaningful performative piece, which forced its creators to adopt a political stance in the light of a period of social unrest taking place in Chile beginning in October 2019. It describes how an apparently nonpartisan installation transitioned into a tool for political expression and refuge. It also allowed the artists to rethink their role in the community as facilitators of art spaces for self-dialogue.
