An icaro (or ikaro) is a song sung in Shipibo healing ceremonies.
The Shipibo are an indigenous tribe in the Peruvian Amazon.
Their fine artwork & hand woven textiles contain the blueprint of their Icaros (songs) which translate visually into elaborate geometric patterns.
This 1.5m Shipibo cloth is hand-made by one individual over a period of 6 months. It has been video mapped and reverse engineered so that the intricate details encoded into the weaving can be explored using animation & video FX composed to location recordings from the Peruvian jungle where the cloth was created.
