Make electronic trash into something n+ew
“Altiro, si po”. (“right now” said in a very Chilean way) reflects synthetically what we are in my country Chile and also in most of Latin America. We want things now, without waiting, even though we indebt to accomplish what we want or spend our whole salary the first day of the month without worrying what will happen tomorrow. We want immediacy. What’s important is to be happy “al tiro”.
Our modern culture (not older than 500 years), almost always bills us. We are new in many things, inpatients, we don’t like to wait, innocents for too long, insolents from now on. We understand that heritage and identity is forging with all of the world’s eyes on us. Based on many successes and mistakes, we learn every day, like a sponge, we are the new continent. It’s interesting to return this “watch” to the world (from the “end of the world”) and shout that this constant “party” that moves our day is the engine to understand everything in a totally different way and to solve things differently, many times with nothing simpler than a smile. Ideas and people who make us laugh carve our souls and we never forget them. "
