This installation alludes to the construction and deconstruction of memory through montage of objects and archive. I compiled landscape shots of Puerto Rico from my grandfather’s home videos to reflect on how they have changed in light of imposed imperial structures and more recently, hurricane María. These landscapes, my mother’s mouth, the colonial chair, the silicone-casted conch shell, and the abstract projection of a spongy texture that looks like a body of water on top of the monitors, are all components of memories that point to my relationship with my mother and my motherland.
