I explore post-colonial theory through mixed media artworks and immersive installations. By investigating the 20th century cultural effects of colonialism within Latiné communities, I challenge the binaries between Self and “Other.” Traditions, memories, and contemporary life are blended in my work to honor, reclaim, as well as, reinvent narratives of the past, present, and future.
