EXTRACTED MEMORIES
 

In this series of sculptures I explore the conflicting human tendencies to both create and destroy the world we inhabit. Post war architecture quickly became a theme of interest to me while studying architecture at the Universidad Central de Venezuela, specifically after watching a presentation about the works and theories of Lebbeus Woods. 


I’ve always been drawn to the idea of artificial geological formations and the reconstruction of nature through art. Humankind spends generations taking resources from nature and transforming the natural landscapes of the world. Humans build incredible cities on top of these grounds, and then destroy them through war resulting in a new form of artificial landscape. 


In the same fashion, I take events of natural phenomena, translate them into human-made objects and bring them back to nature once again as part of my creative process, the end result being the best of both realms. 
Without immediately revealing the origin or the way these sculptures were made, I invite the viewer to contemplate the degree to which my hand or chance played a role in their creation.
