For Remnants, I created objects and images sourced from historical texts as well as familial materials. The frame of the exhibition was to reimagine these objects as artifacts that had been lost decades ago, buried in the earth and the sea. These include traditional piña fabrics, Spanish colonial photographs, and family furniture. I imagined that I had excavated them, only to find that they had been completely transformed by the passage of time and nature’s elements. Whether caked in earth, clay, crystallized salt and/or oxidized metals, these mutated objects now only evoke brief moments of vague familiarity. The original information has been altered, erased or disguised by their physical shift. I am interested in the idea that they are in a continued state of transformation, remaining undefined.
