Conjuring Eden is an ongoing series of 3D-printed reconfigurations of pre-Columbian vessels by Peruvian artist Rebeca Romero. The artworks are modelled using an online resource of artefact scans, with interventions and mediations by the artist. The 3D scans of vessels are made publicly accessible (under CC Attribution Licence) by the Ministry of Culture, Peru.
The hybrid assemblages of Datura XL-7, Cumala IV, Vilca One, Huachuma 3000, Insignis SS and Viridis fuse synthetic and organic forms, depicting a fluid interplay between the physical and digital realms, swinging swiftly between the past and alternate future. The vessels form connections between the 3D scans of Chavin* vessels and the entheogenic plants used in the culture's sacred rituals.
