Quipu: Living Documentary
Inspired by the Quipu, the knotted thread communication system of the Inca Empire, this project captures the stories of people affected by Peru’s unconsented sterilization policy, which targeted over 300,000 indigenous women in the 1990s. Providing an important voice for Peru's hard to reach communities this project aims for maximum possible participation. By combining both low-tech (mobile) and high-tech (VOIP) technologies, Quipu will record and distribute personal oral histories, alongside an audio-based interactive platform connecting this living documentary to the rest of the world.
