In 2017 I met Rosa Asqui and Manuel Asqui, a couple of textile artisans from the Cacha community in Riobamba Ecuador. With this couple we began to collect the greatest amount of iconography that existed in all the traditional fabrics that they knew how to produce and that the people of the sector where they lived produced. We gathered around 120 icons, most of the people in the sector did not know the meaning of most of these icons
With all the images collected we were able to decipher the way in which these icons are built in order to create our own icons endowed with a specific meaning to talk about our contemporary reality. In this exploration of shapes and meanings, we build a series of graphics to talk about the idea of building culture.
