The work is written in Maya Q’qchi’ by the artist, also to be written in a Mayan language, in the same structure as the mayan literature has been written for many years. It is written in the way ancestors told stories and myths. It provides a knowledge “other” writing. The sound work is carried out in a performative way also performed and recorder with the voice and sounds of the own body of the artist. Wich make the sound to have different levels. This work calls for a geopolitical of feeling and decolonial thinking.
