Error de paisaje consists of a series of altered photographs from the 3 Colombian department with the highest number of social leaders murdered since the peace agreement was signed (Antioquia, Cauca and Nariño). Using a hex editor, the files were opened and modified, adding the name of each murdered leader of their respective department photograph.

An image’s code is like its DNA, if altered, its qualities are also changed. By adding the names of the murdered leaders, the ASCII code was translated into binary, meaning that the names became data that resulted in glitch-type errors in the image. Said images are urban and architectural landscapes from each department’s prominent and well-known regions, and they are also modified through editing programs to make them more seductive and unreal, photoshopped chimeras.

The work reflects on the idea that “The future belongs to everyone”, and it proposes a mode of resistance in which the leaders, who are agents of change in their communities, have a direct impact on the representations of the country’s landscape.
