About Alvaro Laiz

Álvaro is a multidisciplinary artist working with photography, text, video and sound. His research-based work deals with narratives where traditional culture, nature and technology converge. As a National Geographic Fellow, he has been developing the long term project The Edge, which combines the poetic yet powerful idea of shared memory and science through population genetics data analysis,  raising discourse around current migratory processes across the entire American continent. The Edge also raises questions about the Anthropocene era and how humans relate to themselves and other species.
