About this video

Born in Madrid to a Spanish father and a Colombian mother whose work lives were primarily in Chicago, Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle’s interest in architecture, politics, and science underscores much of his work. The documentary follows Manglano-Ovalle to an exhibition of his work in New York; his “Random Sky” (2006) façade in Chicago, for which computers process weather data at the installation site to generate a visual representation of climate conditions; and “La Tormenta/The Storm” (2007), a large-scale sculpture of two thunderstorm clouds, installed at the Citizenship and Immigration Services building in Chicago, which serves as a metaphor for the U.S. immigration process.
