    Dinero degradado registra el proceso de transformación de una moneda a una lata “sin valor” al modificarla destructivamente, raspándola contra el pavimento y golpeándola con un martillo hasta dejarla completamente lisa, haciendo que desaparezca el contenido iconográfico que le otorga su valor de cambio. Esta acción (realizada sobre una moneda de dos euros de curso legal) funciona como metáfora de la degradación del sujeto representado objetivamente en forma de moneda, sin embargo la acción puede leerse como un gesto que produce el valor agregado a los objetos manipulados o intervenidos por los artistas. Cabe anotar que aunque el valor de la moneda se anuló mediante la acción realizada sobre ésta, su valor objetual ha sido transformado al de un “valor estético”, hecho que podría generar una plusvalía. El objeto resultante (la lata metálica) se exhibe enmarcada en una caja para su contemplación final como objeto artístico, acompañada del video que documenta el proceso de transformación de la moneda. Degraded Money records the process of transformation from one currency to a "worthless" can to modify destructively, scraping against the pavement and beaten with a hammer until it is completely flat, making disappear the iconographic content that gives its exchange value. This action (performed on a two-euro coin of legal currency) functions as a metaphor for the degradation of the subject objectively represented in the form of a coin, however the action may be read as a gesture that produces added value to the objects manipulated or operated by artists. It should be noted that although the value of the coin was annulled by the action taken on it, its value has been transformed to an "aesthetic value", which might generate a future profit. The resulting object (the metal can) is shown framed in a box for its final contemplation as an artistic object with the video that documents the transformation of the coin.

      • Monster Wedding 2010

        This piece was taken place in the Hyde Park Art Center on October 30, 2010 during an event called Mischief Night. Monster Wedding is a commentary on weddings as a highly hetero-normative ritual that cripples queerness. I place non gendered monsters as something grotesque and is thus seen as otherness. This piece is also a reaction to Proposition 8 banning gay marriage in California in 2008. What does it mean to accept the marriage between monsters and not humans? Is it only acceptable on halloween night when we are all non-gendered or non- human creatures?

                      A performance video shot in my apartment. I dropped jelly beans into a large Ball jar filled with water with a shot glass at the bottom. Ball jars have been prominent in my work for a while. I based this piece on a scene from Joan Jonas' video, 'Organic Honey's Visual Telepathy' from 1972. In her video she drops quarters into a large pickle jar filled with water and a shot glass. I kept coming back to that image and so I decided to make a response piece of my own.
