Installation 4' W x 6' T 2021
There is a natural dichotomy between humans and nature, this installation explores the current climate changes around the world but specially in California were Human-caused climate change has made blazes more frequent and intense, especially during extreme heat waves and drought conditions. In 2020, over 58,250 wildfires burned 10.3 million acres.
This installation works as a reminder for humans to perceived a dead tree as our own body pieces, recognizing that we are one with nature.
*Logs were taken from a burned state park in Ventura California, they are supposed to belong to the state that I broke in to made this statement.
Life and death creates a natural dichotomy that we pretend to ignore.

We are the bodies that society wants to make invisible, the bodies that inhabit this territory, and occupy a space that by origin does not seem to belong to us, migrant bodies are read as foreign bodies that are often rejected and discriminated against.
The invisibility of female bodies makes us seem like a living and fertile being, a body to be exploited, devoured, vomited, like a parasite, wallowing them in a situation of precariousness and quicksand. Those vulnerable bodies that leave their lands unite on the surface of the sea, without being rescued, and carried away by many currents, they are the bodies that are rejected.
