    On 2012, Máquina Cóndor was connected to a seismometer, in such a way that the generated prose began to depend on a double conjunction: the words searched and ranked on the newspapers and the telluric waves produced by the presence of the spectator and the Earth; always restless. In addition, words from surgery, anatomy and forensic medicine (inserted on a gongorian matrix) were replaced by complete fragments extracted from the posthumous work Mundus Subterraneus (1665) by Athanasius Kircher (1601-1680), where it’s proposed that the Earth is a living organism and is compared with the human body. The machine as such was composed by a shop window, a server, PC components, two seismometers and two dismantled 17 inches’ monitors. Biblioteca Nacional de Chile, Santiago de Chile.

Máquina Cóndor (2006-in process) consists –in its most recent version (Máquina Cóndor 4.0, from 2016)– of a processual art piece in development whose core is an algorithm composed (so far) by three interlocking operations:

 A) - Real-time search in 12 newspapers of 333 keywords related to war and economy.

B) - Online search and analysis of the values of the sale of natural resources which are important for the chilean economy (such as lithium, gold, copper and water) and the values of buying and selling currencies of ex-African colonies, the Middle East and the countries where Operation Condor took place (for example of the dollar in relation to the Chilean peso).

C) -interleaving 9 words -provided by the lexicon of surgery, anatomy and forensic medicine- in the first strophe of a memento mori by Luis de Góngora (On Human Ambition, 1623). The disposition of these 9 words depends on the searches and economic analysis exposed in A and B, so that the true poem is not only the generated verse but the relational structure that is the product of a world that is expressed through the filter of the newspapers and the values of foreign exchange and natural resources.

NOTE: That is the true poem: the relational structure arranged by me and through which the world expresses itself in real time through a work that feeds on the facts of the world filtered by the newspapers, never neutral or objective, and the hard data of the economy. The poem is not just the stanza, but all the data synchronized in unison, which, moreover, are the only thing that makes it possible.

On 2012, Máquina Cóndor was connected to a seismometer, in such a way that the generated prose began to depend on a double conjunction: the words searched and ranked on the newspapers and the telluric waves produced by the presence of the spectator and the Earth; always restless. In addition, words from surgery, anatomy and forensic medicine (inserted on a gongorian matrix) were replaced by complete fragments extracted from the posthumous work Mundus Subterraneus (1665) by Athanasius Kircher (1601-1680), where it’s proposed that the Earth is a living organism and is compared with the human body. The machine as such was composed by a shop window, a server, PC components, two seismometers and two dismantled 17 inches’ monitors. Biblioteca Nacional de Chile, Santiago de Chile.
