Ceci Arango:

Corocora Hocker. 1993
Fique-Fasern spiralförmig verwoben auf Espartofasern und einem Gerüst aus dem Holz der Macanapalme
Cucarachero Puffs. 2014
Spiralförmig verwobene Junco-Fasern auf Holzstruktur, Gerüst aus dem Holz der Macanapalme
The seats are handwoven by women from the town of Guacamayas, Colombia, who are well known for a traditional spiral-basket-weaving technique whereby a core of esparto fibers is wrapped in fine fique threads. Visitors are encouraged to sit on the stools.

Monika Bravo:

URUMU [WEAVING_TIME]. 2014
Vier-Kanal-Videoanimation, 5 Min.
The video installation is inspired by a traditional pattern of the Arhuaco people, a cultural group native to the mountanious Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta region adjacent to the Caribbean coast of Colombia. Working from a mathematical analysis of the way in which Arhuaco women weave their patterns, Bravo replicates their designs by constructing the textile digitally, using pixels as her "threads." Bravo’s digital weaving eventually morphs into the landscape of the Sierra Nevada.
