!!!Sección ARTE, a digital exhibition space that presents art projects on a monthly basis through the folder structures in the Paquete Semanal, (The Weekly Package), a one- terabyte collection of digital material compiled by a network of people with various forms of privileged internet access. It is circulated nationwide on USB sticks and external hard drives via an elaborate human infrastructure of deliverymen, so-called Paqueteros, who physically bring the content to the remotest corners of the island and deliver right to their client's homes.
