Juan Covelli

Juan Covelli is an artist currently living and working between London and Bogotá. A graduate of MA Contemporary Photography; Practices and Philosophies at Central Saint Martins, London, his practice revolves around the technological potentials of 3D scanning, modeling and printing to readdress entrenched arguments of repatriation and colonial histories. His work has focused on new materialities generated by the digital era; in particular, on the dynamics and approaches of the physical within the digital world. In the last few years, he has been exploring the relationship between technology, heritage, archaeology and digital colonialism. Using video, modeling, data sets and coding he creates IRL and URL installation-based works which collapse historical practices with current models of display and digital aesthetics.
