About Into the Mind of Pedro Linares
For their Senior Design Project, AET students Krista McLeod, Monse Sandoval-Malherbe, and Karina Trejo created an immersive installation using a combination of UV lights and surround sound. The mystical landscape included a giant “tree of life,” lit-up flora, and a pond, along with paper mache and pepakura sculptures of different forest animals painted with UV-activated paint.
Brilliant colors illuminated the alebrije sculptures, a traditional Mexican art form created by Pedro Linares through a dream.
