Kotah. Installation made of individual artworks. In my piece I use QR Codes embroidered in traditional Mayan garment, as an ornament you use in the Mayan “Day of the dead” altar. The QR code was scannable; it had a link to a website, where you could read and heard a poem about Mayan land, and the loss of its biodiversity. The website included a soundscape of different parts of the region, as well as some pictures.
The whole piece was an altar for the “dead of the biodiversity” concentrating in the disappearance of the bees and their fundamental part in the ecosystem
This Project was made in conjunction with Museums Connect, a program of the US Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the American Alliance of Museums.

2010 Cheech Kiin, Artistic project made in collaboration with Mexican artist Karin Mijangos.
The project combines soundscape, poetry, photography and design as tools for environmental education and understand of the five ecosystems of the Yucatan Peninsula.
The result allows the transfer of the each ecosystem to a showroom through sound, images, braille, video and poetry. In this project I worked on the concept and design of a series of posters that explore images with sounds. The posters were developed from the translation of certain phrases or syllabic sounds in braille. The images were made with braille symbols, to be printed with braille system.
