Desde el principio

Desde el principio, consisted of an installation of three hammocks suspended at ceiling height in the unloading area of La Planta, in Calderón, Quito. This space has been reused and recontextualized for this exhibition. I also employed the sound of the wind, which characterizes the area in the form of a live performance. In addition to the sound of the wind, I also included an audio of people murmuring stories from the northern region, which presented an interpretation of the local landscape.
