The pieces in Floor Map series are based on the search to create an experience that brings people’s bodies closer to the geography we inhabit, the mineral diversity of the Peruvian Andes. Through research, we recognize the Andes as the great element that articulates Peruvian biodiversity: the stones descend from the heights through the riverbeds to the desert and the Amazon. By joining small fragments of stone, considered as waste by the big industry, this surfaces are created and a new geology is symbolically reconstructed and the lithic tradition of Peru is recreated through artisanship.
Floor Map is part of the project ‘The Material of the landscape’. See more in
