"The Self of the Building" is an on-site mural installation inspired by the 41 Cooper Building done by Jessica Angel, a Colombian Artist based in NYC. This futuristic structure is perhaps the most representative of the architectural utopian dreams in New York City. With this piece I show what I consider to be the "personality" of the building. The mural expresses how I interact with this massive monument. Archived material developed by Thom Mayne, my own photographs, sketches and scale models that I assembled throughout my residency and the help of the wonderful Cooper Union interns and friends, were the necessary elements I needed to sustain this project until the very end.
