Weaving is a light installation commissioned by SXSW, where Josue collaborated as a Creative Director with Cocolab. The intention behind this experience was to describe the process of a Mexican loom in an abstract journey inspired by the stories told in Josue’s hometown, Oaxaca, Mexico. This contemplative work of art recreates the mesmerizing shapes and colors of the textiles produced by Mexican artisans.
This light sculpture is mounted as a giant “canvas” made of strings, painted explicitly with narrative light and sound, using a complex mapping technique. The artwork invites the audience to have a reflective experience through the abstract process of creating a loom that goes from a divine to an earthly world.
