I was born in Puerto Rico in 1979 where I grew up. Puerto Rico is a unique place because it's always perpetually in a state of flux, where the majority of the population has no idea if it wants independence, or statehood. In some ways I feel like that spirit of always being in the middle of everything, and not having a clear identity has kept my curiosity and my art making interesting, so I keep making new projects and new solutions to questions that I ask myself.
My work addresses landscape and place-making through the lens of history and fantasy. I am interested in exploring the role of landscape imagery in a variety of contexts and in examining its impact on the politics and psychology of everyday life. While essentially documentary my images allude to science, national iconographies and popular culture as well as more idiosyncratic visions of space and place.
