Andean Traditional Fabric Double Cloth ( kurti ), LEDs, electronic circuits
Dimensions: 90 x 45 cm
Year 2014

Crux is a work that inserts a light sensitive electrical circuit into the traditional Andean loom.

As in many Andean fabrics, the stars are represented. At the same time, a schematic or electrical scheme is reproduced in it, which shows the different components that operate in a light-sensitive circuit and their connection between them, creating a circuit-fabric, within two interwoven fabrics.
While environment darkens, – as in the constellation CRUX-, the LED lights begin to illuminate.

El brazo menor de la cruz del sur es el lado de un cuadrado cuya diagonal es el brazo mayor.
