SOL, 2016-18. 
Video, 6:18.
SOL is a large-scale meditation space/fiber-sculpture made entirely out of recycled textile waste. The inside is made of hand-stitched discarded pillows and sheets, and the outside is woven entirely out of a self-made material, my #handspunrecycledfabricyarn thanks to my #parejasdedeshecho (textile manufacturers, seamstresses, designers, and artists in my own community).
Using my whole body, with radial movements informed by the traditional technique of Puerto Rican Sol Lace, always returning to the center, thinking of our inner and outer worlds, in silence. In it I explore themes of ritual, time, cycles, transformation, slowing down, connection, and sacred space.
