Taking varied inspiration from Quinceañeras, Hurricane Andrew, and Santeria, this body of work is inspired by growing up in Miami in the 1980s & 90s. My work exaggerates and fictionalizes the city's past culture. As the first expected city to cause massive displacement due to climate change, I also imagine a Miami in the science fiction-inspired future: as relics and fossils. Facing its own climate change-induced challenges, presenting this project in Los Angeles, I imagine a dialogue between both coastal cities.
Directions from the 10:
-Take Santa Fe exit and head South on Santa Fe
-Continue on Santa Fe over the bridge at 15th street
-Make a your first right after the bridge onto 25th
-The Entrance is on 25th a block down on the right
-Follow signs for SFAC/Suns for parking
-Look for the 2415 building on the right.
