Being Sumapaz

I made it through origami. It's an original work, I invented the whole folding process.

The inscription says:

Kraft wrapping paper, acrylic paint, color pencil, and Gerardo Gacharná Ramírez, among others. 2019

It's a very local work. Sumapaz is the biggest alpine tundra site (páramo) in the world and it's in Cundinamarca, Colombia. Peasants defend it from big corporations.

The following carranga music video was my inspiration for the sculpture: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-fPkQFbifvM

I wonder if you get something from the folded piece, being so local . Please let me know. I'd appreciate it.

Impressive, are these cloaks worn by the locals?

Re: Being Sumapaz

Thank you very much Doug. Did you watch the music video? The ruana is just as traditional of Boyacá and Cundinamarca peasants as carranga music.

Here are different pictures of peasants wearing ruanas so you can get an idea.
