Merida T’Ho_MX (2009) is presented as a series of photographs and an interactive DVD documenting how the project examines urban dynamics, the many processes of social interaction emerging with the use of new media technologies, as well as the constant variable geometry of the geo-political, socio-historical, cultural and technological configurations existent in Latino territories in the first decade of the XXI century. The projects integrates diverse media and formats such as interactive installation, website, chat, photography, digital video projection, drawing, diagram, live media, live performance and live electronic writing, all working to create the hybrid territory where a real time live performance is mixed with an online game to demonstrate that, today, both the geographies of cities and of the work of art are expanding in multiple directions. Merida T’Ho_MX (2009) employs the wireless network established in public parks in the city of Merida, Yucatan, Mexico.
