As a form of dialogue between the transitory corporeality that I inhabit in the present and my childhood as a space-time of production of subjectivity and material practices of existence, my desire is to blend an array of different visual elements such as family photographs from my childhood, texts, textures and sounds in a piece of video art that addresses and problematizes my situated experience as a ladina/mestiza person and as a sexual dissident, as well as my affectivities and connections to sexual violence, racism, servitude, militarism, aspirations to whiteness and/or the american dream, along with political and social elements that have been at play throughout the course of my life.

A modo de diálogo entre la corporalidad transitoria que habito en el presente, y mi infancia como un tiempo-espacio de producción de subjetividad y prácticas materiales de existencia, deseo conjugar diferentes elementos visuales como fotografías familiares y de mi niñez, textos, texturas y sonidos, en un videoarte que aborde y problematice mi experiencia situada como persona ladina-mestiza, disidente sexual y mis afectividades y vínculos con las violencias sexuales, el racismo, la servidumbre, el militarismo, la aspiración blanca y/o el sueño americano, como elementos políticos y sociales que se desplazan en mi trayectoria de vida.
