History of the Explosion is the first one-person electronic art exhibition to be held in Argentina; promoted by the Borges Cultural Centre and sponsored by Macintosh, it was held on the top floor of Pacífico Galleries. This traditional landmark building hosts a shopping centre in the city of Buenos Aires and is an example of coexistence between art and commerce; since its start it presents murals of important argentine artists such as Lino Enea Spilimbergo and Demetrio Urruchúa that were characters of Dan Arenzon’s childhood.
History of the Explosion is an homage show to Germán Parsons, theatrical cinema and tv, murdered in the terrorist act that blew up the building of the AMIA (Argentine Israelite Mutual Association) in the city of Buenos Aires in 1994.
The animation The Falling is shown in several TV channels in Argentina; it receives an award from the Instituto de Cooperación Iberoamericana that depends on the Spanish Embassy in Buenos Aires in 1997, and is part of The best of the 2 Worlds, a selection by Aleph for ARCO Electrónico, International Contemporary Art Fair in Madrid in 1998.
