Title: The calabozo: virtual reconstruction of a prison cell based on personal accounts
Author: Aroztegui Massera, Carmen
Abstract: The objective of my research is to create a visualization of a place based on personal experiences . My research addresses this issue through a case study : the visualization of a women ? ?s political prison located in Punta de Rieles , Uruguay , during the Uruguayan dictatorship (1973 -85 ) . In June of 2002 , I went to Uruguay and interviewed nine female former political prisoners . I asked them to tell me stories about what happened to them during their time in prison . My research aims at relating their experience of prison through a visualization of their stories . The challenge addressed by my research is the creation of a virtual reconstruction that can communicate the experience of prison through the integration of narrative , light modeling and sound . The proposed visualization is a video installation based on these women ? ?s personal experiences of the solitary confinement cell (calabozo ) .
