Pozo de Petróleo | Oil Well
This piece is a collage of images from various places in Central and South America. Many years ago, I got to travel to La Gran Sabana, a region in southeastern Venezuela. This piece combines footage of lush, beautiful landscapes where my family is from and where over-extraction continues to destroy natural ecosystems. My grandfather, who moved to Venezuela from Costa Rica, would always point out the oil wells and say, "look at the burritos." I was amazed at the amount of oil drilling and the overwhelming smell of gasoline when I first visited Venezuela. However, what most stays with me is her magnificent biodiversity.
Bay Bridge #2
Animation I created from a photo I captured while stuck in traffic on my way across the Bay Bridge. While listening to Bomba Estéreo's song "Tierra."
"La tierra, no se vende ni se compra
Mi tierra es para compartir"
