Magdalena Orellana [1] was born in Buenos Aires, but she films [2], designs [3], and scans [4] in Madrid. She once wrote a manual [5] about how to transit any IKEA store, and a few years ago, she saw Roy singing Cher [6]. You can check what she’s been up to on this spreadsheet [7]. Or read more about her here [8] (another spreadsheet). You can
her for collaborations, commissions, or just to say Hi – mgdlnorellana at gmail dot com 
. Magdalena also irregularly uses Instagram [10] and are.na [11]. This site is constantly changing. It was last updated before dinner on Sunday Feb 28 2021 19:59 am (Madrid time). Some decisions were inspired by this painting. ¿Y en castellano?
