Older piece of mine that I really like. It was a reduction print so the plate was changing every time I carved into it
So it took a bit to get back on here. I will have posts on some stuff later but for now here are some more images.
Digital manipulated images from 1999/2000
part of a series of 4 entitled ‘Sueño con Serpientes’ inspired by song by same name from Silvio Rodriguez.
These are photos of my installation at Columbia College for the ‘Lo Romantico’ show curated by Jesus Macarena Avila
The idea of the piece was to fetishize a microwave in an altarpiece. It was a critique on what role ‘success’ and ‘convenience’ play on the destruction of food based cultural traditions. There were tortillas and cheese available if anyone wanted to make a microwave quesadilla.
These house shapes are made from manila file folders cut and pasted together. I don’t remember how many were made for a show on gentrification at Polvo http://www.polvo.org/subaltern/tucasa.htm.
I think of Victor Jara and the song Casitas del Barrio Alto which I found a video on youtube (of course)
“Éste Niño” Computer manipulated image, 2005
