Ana Barboza and Rafael Freyre explore the relation of contemporary habitat and natural environments through a practice that combines architecture, visual art and weaving. Their projects start from the observation of non-human territory in constant transformation through water, mineral, vegetal and animal forces. Their research process is focused on recognising the uniqueness of materials, organisms, ecosystems and history and searching for collaborations with local artists as well as exploring traditional techniques. The resulting artworks and installations establish new relationships between the body, nature and environments, suggesting a continuity between human and non-human as a collective weaving.
