Accepted Paper:

The Andean and Global Timeline  
María del Pilar Fortunic Oliveira

Paper short abstract:

The following work is a product of the fusion of Anthropology and Art, consisting of a series of 15 collage-plates, created to understand in a single glance, the evolution of the planet and humanity as a Unit. It allows us to see our present and project ourselves into the future.

Paper long abstract:

Our participation will be centered on the exhibition of the "Andean and Global Timeline". A series of 15 digitalized collages, together with a presentation reflecting on the future.

This work is the result of many years of research and the development of an academic database from an anthropological background. As in my country, educational resources are a permanent demand, we decided to elaborate a material of easy access for education and society in general, from any part of the planet and culture.

These 15 artistic collages are read sequentially and also independently. The final product is an image that passes on knowledge and is of a high diffusion.

The particularity of this Timeline is that it is fed by the Andean Cosmovision and the importance of the primordial elements of Nature: fire, water, air, earth, and ether, or the unknown and unfathomable. Each element represents an Anthropological Era made up of three collages. Fire is the Universe, Water is Blossoming, Air is Biodiversity, Earth is Homo and Ether is Humanity and the future. The Line reaffirms the idea of the cycle and of continuity, and the unity of Humanity and the Planet.

As a reflection to the present, we consider the time we are living in as year 0, since it is the first time in the history of mankind that we are living the same event, in time and space: facing a planetary pandemic. It is up to us to project ourselves into the future, spreading knowledge.
