Seeking evidence of adaptation and translation is a central activity in the production of my work. I'm especially interested in the manifestation of these phenomena through cultural signifiers and performative behavior. Applying these concepts by way of personal experience, I am currently focusing on cultural exchange between the U.S. and Mexico and the way in which this conversation can generate problematics of influence and moments of absurdity and spectacle.
