SCREENINGS temporarily keys out BosqueReal’s central spatial feature — the transparent vitrine window — through a thin layer of green color applied to the glass. This ‘green screen’ serves for projections and creates an interface where reflections of the surroundings and electronic images collapse into each other. As anthropologist Shannon Mattern argues, chroma key — colored screens — can construct immersive, fantasy worlds, but these are then often “not of liberation, but of colonization, exoticization, and oppression.” (1) Screenings screens often intentionally unpictured productive forces bound up with the built environment: extractions of natural resources, employments of invisible labor, and uses of digital techniques.
