4 Ríos proposes art, technology and interaction as elements that can contribute to generate new perspectives for the understanding of the historical memory of the armed conflict in Colombia.
Elder Manuel Tobar Panchoaga, Author, to Docubase
4 Ríos is a project that tells the stories of the armed conflict in Colombia using various media, technologies, and platforms to reflect on the consequences of this violence in the country. Components of the project include an interactive online comic, an experimental 360° film, an interactive exhibition using augmented reality, and a pop-up book using augmented reality. The 4 Ríos project narrates the stories and events about the armed conflict in Colombia using artistic, social, technological approaches that offers immersive experiences to the visitors of the project.
The project argues that the process of building memory is essential for reconciliation and peace in the country. Additionally, the documentary materials in the project (including photographs, text, videos, testimonies, and more) used in conjunction with technological tools seek to generate other ways to relate to recent Colombian history. 4 Ríos proposes novel ways to retrieve memories, construct spaces for exchange, debate and rescue the memories that were believed to be lost.
