Eres El Conquistador
When Looking at how history influences the present, we feel obligated to pay homage for it bringing us to who we are today. During hte 15th and 16th century, the desire to know what was beyond Western Europe was finally embarked with the compass as a tool, navigating among the cardinal directions.
Eres El Conquistador consists of wooden shapes resembling 15th and 16th century ideals of what the continents were believed to look like at the time.
The pipes and audio within represent the idea of an era-bridging medium for carrying out these curiosity driven desires for exploration and ultimately conquest.
