Please Don’t Step on My Culture / Por Favor no Pise mi Cultura

18th and PaulinaHi all!

Yes, I have been busy with a job switch and MAKING ART!

Here are a few images of a street intervention I did for the Pilsen Open Studios Art Walk Oct 15 to 17th.

I really dislike the large disks that are cast with the Mexica image of the ‘Aztec Sun’. I have always seen it as disrespectful and wish they would be taken out.

Well….enjoy! I’ll post more images of other work soon

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)
