Living in a flower

living in a flower

Not me by the way :P, some time ago I saw ants in a flower so I used the macro function of my old bridge camera, an Olympus. With cameras with little sensors macro is easier and convenient, there is no need of complex technics as focus stacking or exotic and expensive lenses. I think this tri-dimensional world translated to architectural terms would be more suitable into the space. But it would be nice to try something similar as a concept.

My city, Juliaca (probably the true name is “Xullaca”), has human occupation from thousand of years ago but certainly is not touristic and it has fame to be an ugly city. But we can develop a sense of beauty in any place we have grew up and I find it in the life of it. It’s a commercial city so there is a lot of flyers, posters, ads, signs, in the most colorful palettes against our dull colors in buildings, and several kind of sellers that sell things from the coast, the highlands and the jungles, even things that aren’t in the capital, and of course things from our own industries.

At the same time it’s a luck to not be a touristic city because our traditions are in my opinion more natural and true to ourselves. It’s not about to put a disguise to get one dollar from a tourist but just because we are just like that.
