Exhibitions: Infinite Island: Contemporary Caribbean Art

Artist Statement

The notion of movement, with which the work plays, offers a reading of the historic relationship between nature and artifice. It's for this reason that it is not the object that becomes the work, but rather its representation, the photograph as a symbol of the documentation, which offers itself to the spectator as testimony of the utopia that in the end lives only as image, in the process of disappearing.

I like this picture because it is very educational for me an it helps people be safe by getting burried in a safe place.

This piece of art really demonstrates the Carribean culture, the sand sort of represents the tropical, but in the shape of a highway to show the modern properties. It is a great photograph!

I think it is cool that you can actually make a sand sculpture that can stay so perfect.
