Overview

Just because it looks like a tourist guidebook, doesn't mean it is. Unlike your average Frommer's or Lonely Planet, Jorge Macchi's Buenos Aires Tour is a poetic object that takes an alternative route through the city. Guided not by significant places, buildings, or objects but rather by the insignificant, by lack, Macchi's suggested journey is an autonomous poetic structure created by materials found during the trip itself. But every tour needs its route, and so Macchi has determined one—or rather, let one be determined—by breaking a glass over a map of Buenos Aires, using the capricious fracture lines as the chosen path. A CD-Rom featuring music and the sounds found on the trip completes the journey.
