Chanku luta

A.I.M. Biennial -2020

 

This piece, Chanku luta exemplifies the necessity to find grounding in attempt to transmute turbulent emotional states of current world situations without losing hope for the future. I will examine robotic rituals of consumption in society, where inherent responsibility has been released at every level in the chain of capitalism yet amount to mass destruction. As our mechanical rituals result in symptoms of deathly ill cycles, I find guidance in the spiritual directions that free up needed space to resume responsibility for simple actions.

Within my family of three, I will collect 30 days of trash consumption with forensic details exhibited. The installation fuses household consumption in layers visible and spiritual. It encompasses the seven directions in life: East, South, West, North, Above, Below and the Center. It re-associates our conscious responsibility to all that we have left behind. The location will be in North Miami assembled outside a studio with the backdrop of vines that have taken over the building.
