Extremely honored & excited to show you all a glimpse from my new project. Throughout it I wanted to answer the question “What does it mean to build?” personally, interpersonally & as a society. Using the lexicon of bookshelf language I was able to sort of create a space where the semiotics of the sort of “shelf” were interspersed with the sort of cognitive renaissance of a “book.” This was absolutely vulnerable for me to share but it’s the most honest I’ve been with myself as an artist for a long time. Art made by robot I did not pay & do not intend to.

This is my abuelita Fransisca standing with Don Victor, my abuelo’s brother. We buried our abuelo yesterday with literally a Corona (lmao ) in front of the house he grew up in in Bayamón. His sister sang a song & we all threw dirt on the grave. It rained & then it stopped. Mariano Oyola met my abuela when she was serving at the Old Country Buffet & came every day to visit her & then came into our lives & picked us up from school & had a puerto rican flag that he’d proudly point to in his busted ass car . He was always laughing & I only understood 65 percent of what he was saying. I miss him & wish I asked him more questions & tried to listen to him more.

sonam said my outfit could end wars! The power went out at the @palehound show & I did haikus. Technically I have a fungus that is only cured by bathing in selsum blue!
