Maelstrom is part of a trip to the Amacuro Delta region in which contacts were established with various Warao communities in the area. I have worked with different elements mostly of waste, such as cocuiza fiber, cotton cloth, plaster and a Bora fiber hat made by the Warao tribe. The various materials acquire vital force and are subjected to processes that correspond to the ideas that make up this proposal. The process reveals several semantic lines within which we can find analogies with the strong deterioration to which the area of the Amacuro Delta and its native inhabitants have been subdued, in addition to transferring it to a global panorama in which contemporary civilization is found. On the one hand the strong destruction of the environment and on the other the negation of the natural cycles of change, leading to an avidity for the durability of the body and material possessions.
