Water is of existential importance for human life and now object of a global enviromental crisis unprecedented in human history. Water is not only a natural resource, but also an object of politcal empowerment & social meaning. NO LAND is a hand paper woven tapestry piece of 1,50 X 1,80 created from hundreds of selected cutted pieces from vintage maritime cartography & navigation charts documents. Referring to the suyu whipala structure each module will be cutted in 7×7 cm and join together manually. Designed with a stepped pattern inspired from the sacred ruins and old scaffold textiles used in the Andean cultures; this work seeks to rescue an ancestral ritual of gratitude to water as a vital element for humanity.
