Untitled (dwellings), 2019, fabric, wood, 12040 NE West Dixie Highway, North Miami, FL . Courtesy the artist. Former location of community elders who tended local plant nursery. Most of South Florida is changing. Some changes are necessary but when we loose our elders we also loose parts of our roots. Without roots or history we are at the mercy of unstable tomorrow.
