Esrawe + Cadena 'Los Trompos' Installation @ The High Museum of Art

Atlanta, Georgia’s High Museum of Art has unveiled a large-scale, ambitious interactive design

Atlanta, Georgia’s High Museum of Art has unveiled a large-scale, ambitious interactive design installation by Mexican designers Hector Esrawe and Ignacio Cadena. Los Trompos (The Spinning Tops) features more than 30 gigantic spinning tops in a variety of color combinations and shapes, created by fabric woven in a traditional Mexican style. The interactive element of the installation comes when visitors, working together, can spin the tops, just like their miniscule, real-world counterparts. “Only through this interaction and collaboration will the work come to life and be complete,” explained Cadena. Esrawe adding that “The concept behind -Los Trompos- is based on an approach of traditional toys, their colorful expression and the way they are constructed. We wanted to talk about the traditions and skills of the craftsmen in Mexico, as an inheritance of our culture. We like the idea of translating these techniques into new symbol.” You can see Los Trompos at the High Museum of Art until November 29.
