Chucho (Jesús) Ocampo Aguilar

Portrait of filmmaker Chucho (Jesús) Ocampo Aguilar

FSC-Harvard Fellow 2021-22

Chucho (Jesús) Ocampo Aguilar is a Mexican artist and architect working in the intersection of art, architecture, and technology. At the heart of his practice lies the concern of how, through interfaces, workshops, walking, and appropriation of spaces can we misuse, misinterpret, and detour deterministic conceptions of our milieu. Using drifting/erring as a tool, Chucho seeks to challenge preconceptions around scale, use-function, migration, bureaucracy, citizenship, and our relation to the more than human entities.

Expect People to be Exhausted is an attempt to understand if there is a way to trace a line that makes sense of the relation between migratory human and more than human routes, architectural infrastructure, religious beliefs, war tactics, seven and fourteen segment displays, indigenous thought, fire, alchemy, magic, and gunpowder.
