I am a second year interdisciplinary MFA student at the University of South Florida in Tampa. I work in photography, video, performance, land, and architectural sculpture in conversation with installation. Originally, I am from the rural town of Añasco on the island of Puerto Rico, but have resided in the United States for the last 10 years. My interest in concepts of distance, displacement, citizenship, colonialism, and family have aimed my work around Latinx identity – to the study of phenomenal experiences of any person who is bridging two cultures, both physically and philosophically. I have always been interested in collaborations with my family and attempting to reconstruct a forced interruption that is embedded in the complexities of Latinx identity. The work has always revolved around family and assisting as an emotional bridge.
