Featuring the people of Buenos Aires
Edited by Patricio Guillamon
Music by Moby
Salvaje (7:01) was created by Patricio Guillamon. The video art film presents the juxtaposition of the daily commute in a metropolis and the rawness of nature. We encounter the human struggle of cosmopolitan routine with a quiet longing for a connection to what is wild. Shot in Buenos Aires and the unpopulated silent sierras of Cordoba, Argentina. Music by Moby.
As a photographer and artist, Patricio Guillamón’s work spans the worlds of fashion, photojournalism and pop art, highlighting both the real and imaginary and focusing intimately on the subject. Whether backstage, on the street, or in a remote mountain town, Patricio’s photography documents life through its most intimate and quiet moments, following a shadow, a glance, and the spaces between. Through experimental photography and psychedelic digital collages composed of distilled images of his own and others’ work, Patricio plays with symbols and meaning, offering up his own artistic and political commentary with series such as Weapons of Mass Seduction and works like Ayatollah Uncle Sam. Born, raised and living in Buenos Aires, Patricio has studied at the University of Palermo, as well as the School of Visual Arts and ICP in New York. His work has appeared in Polo Today, FTV Magazine, D-Mode Magazine, The Argentina Independent, XXXX magazine and others.
Moby was born in New York City, but grew up in Connecticut, where he started making music when he was 9 years old.

He then played with post-punk band ‘awol’ while studying philosophy at the university of Connecticut and suny purchase. He started dj’ing while attending college, and was a fixture in the late 80?s New York house and hip-hop scenes, dj’ing at clubs such as mars, red zone, mk, and the palladium.
