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

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.
