The letters a and i are present in the words raíz (root) and país (country). Let's think of ahí (there) but badly worded, twisted.
In AÍ, I propose different ways of relating to the territory. To do so, I walk through the space, explore it, and display a flag on one of the mounds that make it up - a vestige of previous occupations. A flag appears with a textural weave of those words. The sound is another layer to that texture in the form of a mantra.
