To rally support behind Mexico’s native corn strands, design studio Maizz Visual created Dioses del Maíz, an audiovisual installation that projects the faces of Pre-Hispanic corn gods atop four trees in Mexico City’s Parque México. The green faces, which moved through smooth 3D video transitions, were specially prepared so that two projections could fit on a single tree at once.

Huichol people believe in four principal deities: the trinity of Corn, BLUE Deer and Peyote and the eagle, all descended from their Sun God, Tao Jreeku. Most Huichols retain the traditional beliefs and are resistant to change.
“According to a Huichol myth, the Sun created earthly beings with his saliva, which appeared in the shape of RED FOAM on the surface of the ocean’s waves.” “New things are born from “hearts” or essences, which the Huichol see in the red sea foam that flowed from Our Father the Sun. The Sun itself has a “heart” that is its forerunner. It adopts the shape of a bird, the tau kúkai. The bird came out of the underworld and placed a cross on the ocean. Father Sun was born, climbed up the cross, … in this way killing the world’s darkness with his blows.”

Carlos Cruz-Diez has been exploring the kinetic movement of colour in his celebrated works, creating interactive manufactured chambers that lures visitors to rethink their perceptions of colour in their everyday lives. The installation works in a very personal way, altering the colour of your skin, clothing and anything you so happen to be carrying on your person. It culminates to create an experience that adapts depending on what chamber you immerse yourself within, drawing attention to the individual experience of processing colour through a disruption in the way that light is received and understood.
