Chakana. 120 

Interactive sound installation created for the contemporary music festival in Quito-Ecuador. The piece was based on a geometric exploration of the chakana, an ancient symbol native of the Andean indigenous communities, which contains in its composition several elements of the Andean worldview. The work is created from the iteration of this base form, generating a mandalic composition. The sculpture contains a sound reacting light system, which projects its geometry as a shadow into space. The spectator interacted with the sculpture creating its own spatial composition using Andean musical instruments. The project was later part of 36Q show and tell light symposium in Prague.

Concept and design: I. López
Sound design: Oscar Bahamonde
