     Chile is burning and I only see Blurry images explores the experience of living an event -the Chilean “Social Explosion”- through the images of others, on a screen. From an hotel room in Beijing I try to download the photos and videos that have been shared on a What’s App group, but I can’t access the information. They write about fires in Santiago and a curfew. With my chest on fire, I curse the wifi and I stay frozen looking at those pixelated images. How can I take part of this event if can’t even see?
