Cumiyá is a word in wixárika, the language of the Huicholes, which means dream, but in a sense of inner journey. The intention of this intervention is to create a space that encourages a dream, an interior journey, converting the stay into a unique experience, as a sacred ritual, for which a journey through 4 different stays in the room is proposed, in which the design generates different atmospheres, temporalities, and languages.
1. Hayá (Entrance)
This space will introduce you to an atmosphere that is calm , an alternative to the restlessness of contemporary life, meant to intensify olfactory sensations and to create a link between smell and memory. In the Hayá, you will be received by the Wech (armadillo), which will take care of your assets during your trip to Cumiyá. You can leave your objects protected and let go of them without worries. Naked, you will make contact with space through the senses. The body, objects, and affections will find a level of oneness. You will be welcomed with timeless materials, with different textures, smells, sounds, and flavors. You will already be in the Cipurí (sensory journey), a synesthetic world.
2. Haiunari (Spring in the land of peyote)
The second stay focuses on purification. You will get in touch with Tamatzi (goddess of water), who endows man with a regenerative force and in turn, produces a deep sense of serenity. In this process of purification, you will be accompanied by the Peek (dog Xoloitzcuintle), considered the god of duplicity, guardian and nocturnal guide, a transcendental ally that will take care of you during the introspective moment of corporeal sensations. This space will introduce you to an atmosphere that is calm , an alternative to the restlessness of contemporary life, destined to intensify olfactory sensations and to create a link between smell and memory.
3. Tacuá (Exterior)
In this third phase or stay you must connect with the Keirak (the whole community, the whole world), it is a space where you can perceive the relationship between heaven, the divine, the earth and the mortal, "the quaternity". Space intended for conversation where you can spend a long time until you reach reflection accompanied by the Xicalli (vessel of sacred liquid).
4. Hiyá (Sleep)
Last stay, it's time to walk through the deserts of Cumiyá, in this place the time goes by differently, in it you can find the greatest desires and face your worst fears, in this journey you will not be alone, Kauyumari (Deer, maximum deity and guide) will show you the paths that you must travel and will guide you so that during this trip you do not get lost and come back renewed, transformed.
Nanatiheciare (Dawn)
The cycle culminates to give rise to a new one.
