Statement

Katty Huertas is an artist and designer interested in the overlap between analog and digital mediums. Her thesis deals with folklore and magic realism. Her thesis is a celebration of Colombian folklore through different graphic ways of communicating a narrative.  By writing a story, designing a typeface, making a book, and creating a sculpture that activates through AR, she built a universe for Mountain Mother to live in, one which was informed by the place she comes from.
