Tom Tom Resident Artist, Federico Cuatlacuatl will lead a workshop on making kites which he will feature in his exhibit: Desencabronamiento.

Using sculptural kites and digital video projection, Cuatlacuatl aims to activate a space where unlike communities can find a meeting point to coexist in dialogue and culture. This exhibit will express a perspective that empathizes and connects with local Latinx immigrants to amplify collective voices, highlight relevant local urgencies, produce diversifying advances, and pose art as a powerful lens for cross-cultural endeavors.

Cuatlacuatl will showcase his exploration and experimentation of various kite models, materials, and sizes alongside experimentations with 3D tracking the motion of kites during flying sessions and using this data to simulate 3D animations. Another emphasis of this project will be community engagement through kite-making workshops and flying sessions.
