We crossed thousands of kilometers, in 2008, of a very precarious landscape on a boat,
feeding websites and putting up public interventions, in places where even electricity was
scarce, and cellular technology had yet to arrive, is a breakthrough in survival and
professional skills. However, this was not the main point of the project which was a
laboratory of subjectivities, ours and of the lives of those who encountered us.
As the Brazilian government started the construction sites to diverse the waters of the
Sao Francisco river, the second major Brazilian river, we took off from Sao Paulo to spend
a month on a floating studio situation, from where we made daily reports, collected images
and samples of what signifies a river that will be rectified, and brought artistic public
interventions as a dialogue starter, to establish a contact with the peoples living on the
margins of the Old Chico.
