Tinkuy. Meeting in diversity, is a visual record that is part of the research project "Visual Chronicles of Abya Yala", which connects the designer with her ancestral roots. It is a return to the elemental, the irreducible, to the origin. It is a journey through several archaeological pieces from different cultures that inhabited the Andes, where the concept of Tinkuy (Encounter between opposites and differences) is visually represented. Tinkuy is a Quechua word that encompasses the richness of diversity, a point where different ways of thinking, interests, traditions, and cultural expressions converge. It is a space for exchanging knowledge, strengthening ties, forging alliances to work on projects that benefit the different communities as a collective rather than an individual being.
