This project is an extension of my ongoing exploration of the topic of self-representation in El Pertenecer en Tiempos Modernos (Belonging in Modern Times) (2019-2020).

I depart from stereotypical photographic portraits of subjects to render them through constructive and deconstructive methods. To disrupt photography's flat, two-dimensional surface I cut and reassemble the images to build sculptures and collages. I use photography as the basis for the three-dimensional objects as a means to challenge our visual perception. Often implying that identity is, in fact, a social construct while also engaging with notions of existentialism.

My identities intersect coming together to construct my multiple sense of Self, like a puzzle. For this reason, I made each of the works in this series so that the pieces can be rearranged to create a new piece, just like we can change as people or present one of our multiple selves in different situations. Although I do not appear in the pictures I see the works as self-reflective and the process becomes a form of meditation that reflects my efforts to reconstruct and to make sense of my own identity.
