Mountain Mother & Other Stories — MFA Thesis

  • Mountain Mother & Other Stories is a celebration of Colombian folklore using different graphic approaches to communicating a narrative.

    Through drawing, the writing of a story, the designing of a modular typeface, the making of a flag book, and the creation of a sculpture that activates through augmented reality, a universe was built for Mountain Mother to live in, one which was visually informed by the place she comes from.
  • The sculpture is made out of wood and was laser-cut and hand-painted. The eyes are hollow to allow for a screen an animation. Mountain Mother the sculpture activates through AR.
