"ICONOGRAFÍA DEL DESPERTAR: ESTÉNCIL" consists of a compilation of 550 stencils of the Chilean social outbreak, of the so-called ground zero and its surroundings.
These popular expressions are part of the elements that account for our local identity and are a living reflection of the crucial process that the country was experiencing, becoming a visual heritage that had to be rescued and disseminated.
With a visual archeology logic, that is, a reconstruction of the graphic piece as it was originally conceived, it was isolated from its context through a vectorization process (digital drawing), reconstructing —in some cases— those fragments that were incomplete. , respecting the dominant morphology of the stencil.
This book is divided into three large groups: image stencil, mixed stencil, and typographic stencil, and in each of these thematic subcategories are contemplated, together with a formal analysis of an outstanding selection of stencils. In the same way, he reflects through three essays on the sociocultural processes that our country experienced and is still experiencing.
