Untitled (MIA Mobile Studio Residency)
My project for the AIM Biennial was to utilize the MIA Mobile Studio residency for three weeks in the summer of 2023 and create sculptures. I ended up working as well as sleeping in the vehicle. My time was spent mostly reading and concentrating on various sculpture works while listening to Jazz, Merengue and Hip Hop music. My time was isolated but did not feel lonely. There was a sense of invisibility necessary to produce work and stay focused.
