Cromática (Chromatic) is a project that consists of a series of works that start from the idea of the synesthesia to establish different relationships and organizational models of sensory associations. The rescue of traditions is a great vehicle for the preservation of memory, and therefore the Ancestral crafts such as textiles or ceramics are present in the project. They are especially three colors that act as the conceptual epicenter of Cromática which refers to the three great kingdoms of nature: the animal, from the grana cochinilla (cochineal grana), the vegetal kingdom of the blue indigo and the mineral pigments that are used for the realization of yellow. These three axes deploy a whole range of disciplines from connection bridges that establish correspondences between technology, understanding, and knowledge. The key element in this project is the sound of work, of the materials themselves, and the sound of the color.
