Blanca holds a Masters degree in Plastic, Electronic and Time-Arts from the University of the Andes, Bogotá, and also an LLM -Masters in Law- from the University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA.

“The work CRISOLES is a video installation that seeks to present, poetically and from the exploration, an approach to the non-human point of view in relation to the use and transformation that humans make of the planet Earth. When oil is spilled into the sea, for example, a greasy membrane disperses and expands like a thin sheet of elastic, flexible and resistant material that overlays, acts as a conduit, separates and accumulates without mixing with water, sand or with any creature -a turtle, a coral-, etc.”
