In the interest of constructing a transportable work, we decided to use textile, which is envisioned as a field of experimentation. PASO is a cloak made from 1200 triangles, symbolic synthesis of the peaks of the Andean mountains. The triangles are carefully dyed one at a time in a palette that ranges from blue to white and then stitched together. The work covers the gallery space in its entirety. It is suspended from the ceiling at twenty different points, hovering 1.20 meters above the floor. It is an inhabitable and light-weight space that subtly and playfully engages the idea of interior and exterior.
The Andes House transports its own mountain range, built on the basis of awareness of work with material informed by a local vision. It is the result of research performed on the problems of form, function, and production where materials and culture are reinterpreted in relation to their current context and condition.
