Description Falsa calma es una denuncia de la distopía en que devino la utopía patagónica de los hidrocarburos de mediados del siglo XX. Los mismos campamentos petroleros que en tan poco tiempo poblaron la Patagonia bajo la consigna del desarrollo, hoy día sucumben ante la falta de oportunidades. Pueblos a medio hacer, abandonados por el Estado, cuyos habitantes sobreviven a duras penas en un entorno adverso. Pero no se trata ya de la hostilidad de la naturaleza “salvaje”, que tanto retrataran las narrativas del XIX: es la propia decadencia de la civilización la que corrompe las bases de la sociedad.
Falsa calma is a denunciation of the dystopia in which the Patagonian utopia of hydrocarbons of the mid-twentieth century became. The same oil camps that populated Patagonia in such a short time under the slogan of development, today succumb to the lack of opportunities. Half-done villages, abandoned by the State, whose inhabitants barely survive in an adverse environment. But it is no longer about the hostility of the "wild" nature, which the narratives of the 19th century portrayed: it is the decadence of civilization itself that corrupts the foundations of society.
