Order of Chaos
A piece of art inspired in male domesticity.
The textile world bonds me with my mother, my home, and my roots. Yet my house is predominantly masculine, and this piece of work talks about the universe I have come to know through my father, my brothers, and friends: the order of chaos.

I built a universe made up of printed wood, wires, cables, plastic, and minor elements normally used for construction. Using techniques that my mother taught me, like crochet and macrame, as well as others that I learned in college suchas plain weave, manual printing, and improvised knotting with the nature of the materials, I built 19 switchable frames that make up an order-less, non-sensical puzzle, and built them around a folding screen structure so it keeps referring to the house.

This universe invites the observer to interact, switching the squares and letting the pieces take their own space so as to finally create their own order, or their own chaos, just like it happens with the male domestic space of my men, in my home.
