An amount of abandoned garbage in the vacant land at the end of the city of Calama in Chile.
Stray dogs and gypsies have settled, the place is like a no man's land where one can breathe an untouchable atmosphere.
There is always a strong wind blowing on the flat ground.
S.Yoshida made a wind instrument installation with abandon bottles.
Babylon Cinema will host a two days program, Dec 15 and 16 2018
This project was inspired by The seven colors of the actual "Wiphala" originate from the visible spectrum.
The significance and meanings for each color are as follows:
Red: The Earth and the Andean man
Orange: Society and culture
Green: Natural resources
Blue: The heavens
Violet: Andean government and self-determination
The Wiphala (Quechua pronunciation: [wɪˈpʰɐlɐ]) is a square emblem, commonly used as a flag, representing some native peoples of the Andes that include today's Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador and parts of Argentina, Chile and Colombia.
