Carlos Irijalba presents <em>And the Wall Became Allergic to Humans. Réplica aurática</em> at Altamira Museum. This exhibition brings back to their original context, in the form of photographs and 3D prints, the 3D scans and photogrammetries that were carried out in the Cantabrian cave in the 1990s when these digital reproduction techniques were practically unknown.

In Skins, the author emphasises the technological filtering of cultural interpretation. The Altamira Cavez were discovered in 1879, in 1977 they were closed to the public and in 2001 the Replica Museum was opened. The scanner used for its documentation is an ultrasound scanner and does not see the cave paintings, only the volume of the wall. It is on this Irijalba bases his study of the dissociation of reality and representation in our effort to preserve it and the distance implicit in the in the tool used.
