Ritualizing narratives whether it be an unrestful journey of an Afro Cowboy or love wounds of a Black Matador. My work is a universal vision for the people and embodies a magnitude of cultural legacies I have been influenced by or subconsciously tapped to produce. I use performance, sculpture and installation as peace offerings for the world that we are constantly tossed in to strengthen the ties of...

Uknown, 2012 Artist Statement My work is about the memory of growing up in El Salvador, and about migration. But my work is also about the experience of simultaneity: of living in two places at once, San Salvador and Los Angeles, existing in two or more, but different versions of modernity, in different cultural mind frames, moving back and forth within different technologies and different temporalities. I think of memory as part of a process of transformation, movement, becoming other, nomadism. And so, I build memory in order to imagine possible futures. I make machines that function as metaphors of movement, time travel, simultaneity. My time machines, memory machines, fortune teller machines, pinball machines display crumbling versions of modernity and newer versions of modernity at once. The ability to intervene in the chronological order of time is important to my work. I am also interested in exploring syncretism and simultaneity through vernacular or domestic architecture in...
