Part of 'Cities Methodologies' Exhibition: The role of the record: photography of earthquake affected areas through time

The exhibition explored the changes -and the non-changes- that a heritage village in Chile, San Lorenzo de Tarapacá, has suffered since a large earthquake affected it in 2005 by the juxtaposition of photographic records taken in different periods of time, aiming to reveal sometimes imperceptible variations and to question the reconstruction process that follows the earthquake. Vertically, a series based on six archive photographs taken before the seismic event are presented. Horizontally, two photographic elevations of one street façade can be seen, the first taken a month after the 2005 earthquake and the second taken after the reconstruction has finished in 2013. As this method has the capacity of being a virtual database for memory, it is interesting how it could affect the decisions of demolition, intervention or replica in the design of reconstruction projects, especially when complemented with other recording technologies such as 3D laser scanning, further explored in Bernadette's PhD research. Exhibited materials are for sale. Please contact any of us if you are interested.
