Yahui is a book-object of Victoria Pacheco’s shimmering portraits of Sirius, Regulus, Antares, and Betelgeuse. A selection of found texts and drawings from mythological, astronomic, and folk sources accompanies the images and the whole is contained in a cardboard tube evoking the form of a telescope.

“I became interested in this optic phenomenon after discovering the coloured lines revealed on my long exposure photographs under the Mexican night sky.” Victoria Pacheco
