Jaguara - the roar of the jaguar
Bogota, Colombia and Los Angeles, USA
JAGUARA is a collaborative project by an interdisciplinary collective of artists, designers, scientists, musicians, ancestral knowers, ecologists, communicators, teachers, technicians, and artisans from different areas of the American continent.
We are uniting our voices and spirits to co-create a mutant-vehicle portraying a Jaguar emerging from the Amazon River. Through this artful celebration of the Jaguar, we want to raise awareness about the vulnerability of the main refuge of the Jaguar: the Amazon rainforest.
This powerful and sacred being emerges from the water to remind us, through music and light textures, of the vital beat of the jungle that pumps life to our continent and preserves the balance of global climate.
Jaguara, the messenger from the rainforest, is calling us to join our hearts, voices, and actions towards the conservation of the home of the jaguar, for the sake of our own home, planet earth, and our own existence.
