Tales From The Trash Stratum 

Location: Metáfora Studio Arts, Barcelona
Year: October, 2022

Tales from the Trash Stratum is created from found items, found fabric, rope, sediment (part concrete, part soil), resin, fiberglass, and oil paint. 

Sediment is a solid material that is moved and deposited in a new location. Sediment can consist of rocks and minerals, as well as the remains of plants and animals. It can be as small as a grain of sand or as large as a boulder.

I am a cavity in sediment 

Part fertile

Part deconstructed 

I am a place to store

Stability and source 

It probes from the tips of my fingers 

I am peeling back the bark

Turn and see 

A home with two walls 

A horse with two legs 

I drag it into the night

I drag it over pavement 

I want to wrap you in soft silk


I want to wrap you

The holder becomes held 

Free from desire, you realize the mystery 

Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations 

Yet mystery and manifestations 

Arise from the same source

This source is present in my life

It is present in my home

How do I know it's true?

By looking inside myself 

Where do you come from?

Trace back the manifestations to find out
