Piรฑatas are a symbol of celebration and paradoxically, of aggression. Most children cry when they first witness the piรฑata ritual and as they grow, this violence is normalized.
How do we, as adults, react when there is real violence against other humans in the world?

IThis installation recreates a Castro-era luxury department store that was bombed in a very symbolic act of terrorism. The concrete mix design is taken from the construction codes of that era that replaced buildings like this one with public housing projects. Guests are confronted with the scene of a complicated narrative that is set both in different ages of the past as well as the present. This work is extremely relevant and specific to a generation of Cuban-Americans that feel Cuban but donโ€™t really know Cuba. It is a generation with a rich history and a bright future, which shouldnโ€™t be confined by said identity, but also shouldnโ€™t lose the inherited memory it brings.

This recreated short goes into great detail, subverting the original video's authoritarian male gaze into a humorous self-reflective statement on the status quo of women in society. Nadja playse plays both characters 'the good and the bad woman', confronting the original's patriarchal narrator with delightful self-awareness. Disrupting the original's dangerous ideology, the video-performance highlights the absurdity of its creation in the first place but also points at prevailing truths on gender inequality. This project was supported by the Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant, New York.

This installation comments on our views of the aging process, rituals of embellishment and the natural endangerment caused by human interaction with the environment. Bananas stand in greater peril than the majority of other fruits because they are sterile, seedless mutants. Our generation's existence is dependent on an ecological equilibrium- if nature does not retain this harmony, we will also cease to exist. Guests are invited to exchange preserved banana peels in acrylic paint and various materials to create a procedural relic, which suspends the piece in time. Nostalgia of iconography transforms the salon into portals of meditation and reflection of an almost disintegrating past. The Sunday Painter Beauty Bar specializes in the urgency of preserving and embellishing the present, regardless of itโ€™s fleeting nature.

The Miami Music Project uses music as an instrument for social change, transforming the lives of children from Miamiโ€™s most underserved communities. Music becomes a bridge from a dim and isolated past to a bright and welcoming future. The segregated bathrooms of the historic Burdines flagship provide a uniquely dramatic setting for the experience. A sobering vestige from a dark past, the space feels equal parts forgotten memory and timely reminder. A place designed to divide and diminish. Against these austere walls of division, the radiant octahedron that is the Miami Music Project shines most bright.

A series of sculptures that from a minimalist point of view evoke the development of cities from the beginning of civilization to the present; where in some cities we see outdated architecture, and where some cities respect machines more than nature and humans. The idea of building a city that grows organically has been displaced, where buildings are built for profit and not for the well being of younger generations. The results are some uncomfortable and unfavorable cities that break with human interaction thus creating robotic behaviors. We find an escape in the virtual world.
