In an art world moving toward awareness of the power of kinetic, robotic, sound, light and time-based new media, Laramascoto certainly has a place. You likely haven’t heard much about them yet, unless you’re in Spain. But their creative approach to experimental animation and audiovisual installation is cutting edge. (Above and below: from Lady Cyborg – mural and animation on mp4)
The Laramascoto Colectivo is the Spanish team of Beatriz Coto and Santiago Lara, clearly emerging talents although there is not much on them yet outside Europe. (They have a WordPress blog, in Spanish, here.) Laramascoto is showing at ARCO Madrid 2014, the international contemporary art fair running through Feb 23rd.
See their C.V. and artist statement page, here.

They are exhibiting at ARCO Madrid with the gallery Espacio Liquido, here.
