Installation that consists of a series of 3D objects and audiovisual displays that are based on aerial images of the geoglyphs. These images were made by civilizations of the Amazon in different areas of the jungle and later discovered from the massive deforestation of these territories. The ancient geoglyphs, understood as biodesigns of ancestral Latin American thought, are converted by the artist into visualizations of digital volumetric reconstruction – “speculative reconstruction” – in the words of Salazar. The creative process comprises learning patterns of the forms found in the jungle and the production of sculptural objects using digital fabrication techniques.
