Nicolás Rupcich received his BFA from the Universidad Finis Terrae and his MA from the Universidad de Chile, He also is a Cross Media Graduate of the Mac-PC Academy. Between 2013-2015 thanks to a DAAD scholarship he did his Meisterschüler studies in Medienkunst at the Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst (Leipzig, Germany).
Rupcich works primarily with photography, video and installation, his work is focused in the characteristics of the image in our time, mainly in the production systems of digital images, using its aspects and material conditions as thematic elements. Subjects which are related to the construction of an artificial environment can often be found, where the concept of “image” is involved, either on the configuration of our environment or as well in behaviour of our society.
