(b. 1994, Miami) The materiality of my sculptures drive their own historical narrative and cultural interpretation. The ambiguity of human action in politics, policies and administration have been shaping my ideas in sculptural forms of association and relation. Urgent climate issues and anthropogenic effects apply pressure to our contemporary cultural production. The act of gathering information, my sculptures in turn, present experimental approaches to ethnographic research. Can anthropology go beyond text? What would the materiality of anthropology look like? The process of adding elements of nature into art directly reflects Anthropocene markers. We are coming into a geological age where nature and man-made are no longer separate. By adding nature into art, the object is neither one or the other but a conglomerate emergence of our future state.
