Camilo Andres Rodriguez Marquez

Camilo Andres Rodriguez Marquez is a Colombian born designer with studies in industrial design from Colombia (FUAC) and Mexico (UNAM). Fascinated with photography and cinematography, his intention is to unify this two artistic expressions into his design in the form of narrative, projecting and communicating the interaction between the world and his objects. In his visits to several places in Mexico such as San Juan Chamula in the sierra of Chiapas, Tzintzuntzan in Michoacán or Real de Catorce in San Luis Potosí. Was exposed to experiences that provided him with the awareness of how traditions, storytelling and rituals play an important role on how humans interpret their reality and our role in the universe. .

My hope is that we become attuned with what surrounds us in a sensorially and emotional state, by perceiving this pieces with a story Injected in the creation. This is why I want to exhibit where it originated from and the relationship with the craftsman. This journey leaves a trace that can be seen in those imperfections, details and physical signals that the artlessness of the handicraft possesses.

The reinterpretation on this interaction aims to provide a holistic view, where the mind can find a pleasurable and seamless contemplation in regards to the imperfection and the impermanence of nature.

CarmWorks is a respond to this exploration, on shaping people’s lives by suggesting a broader sensibility and providing a story to tell with these objects.
