Pachanga / Book


Discipline: Communication


Discipline: Communication

Pachanga means party in Latin America. This is the title chosen by Belén
Mena for her interpretations of moth mating behavior in the cloud forest of
Ecuador. She collected hundreds of them and discovered in their wings a
formal language ranging from Baroque to psychedelic, from Biedermeier to
Vienna workshops. This cosmos of colors and forms is published in book form
as a precious, loving collection full of ideas - starting with the woven
cover with a Pachanga pattern to the introduction on thin paper, which gives
the impression that you can hear the rustle of the cloud forest, to the
typographical interpretations of the moth's flight.
