Stillness is in the Eye of the Hurricane
I am a Miami native. My training in archaeology influences my practice for creating sculpture installations, enabling me to retrace ideas around the afterlife, Pre-Columbian cosmology, and the interplay of cultures from the global south. I examine archaeological materials and ecological transformations in the Americas including the Caribbean. By having an understanding of the landscape’s past traditions and its environmental history, I begin to describe my own parallel and intersecting universes. I am interested in materials that have resonance with people, in both the personal and historical senses. By creating new instantiations of the human figure, I investigate ancestral relationships to each body and social ecosystem.
