A LAST RESORT
Advisors: Geoffrey Thün and Craig Borum
- Catamarca, Argentina, known for its high yield of wine and beef, is a microcosm of culturally associated culinary pairs in a country facing unforeseeable climatic variation – a fifth season of alterity. Possible futures for cultural production through the gustatory desire of beef and wine are thus dependent on atmospheric effects of climate change and the ecological affect of productive landscapes and anthropocenic architectures. Manifest as a winery-beefery-ecotourism resort, hybrid programmatic ‘pairings’ restructure the symbiotic productive landscape as a cultural-ecological construct.
