What I Do
Places are complex, dynamic, inviting sets of relations, realities, and worlds...
My work in Geography + Environmental engineering + clinical manual therapies, come together in the creation of
Places and "blue green Infrastructures."
For keeping well.

Euphoria. Everywhere. Anywhere.

“To the people who one day might grieve because these boulders came down on them, remember that thoughts, well wishes, and prayers came with these… May you find the strength and courage to perceive past the agony. These gifts came from the most beautiful volcano in the world. May you find tenderness, solace, and peace in that thought.”
A conceptual series of painted boulders on an ephemeral (and quarried) Salvacion River in Daraga, Albay. Boulders on river beds are bound to be transported with floods. white and gold painted heart prints, these "threats of destruction" were "tendered" and transformed into "offerings" of well wishes for the lucky or unlucky future recipients of floods downstream. The loops and connected dots on the piles of rocks, are symbols of collective transcendence in times of crises.

Art to communicate disaster risk + transcendence, Salvacion River, Daraga Albay, Philippines
A conceptual art piece on an andesitic boulder (at least 1m3 vol) believed to have been deposited in Barangay Salvacion, Daraga, Albay (Philippines) during the 1814 eruption and lahar flow regime of the Mayon volcano. The white and gold lace pattern enamors the rock to symbolize living in grace amidst a landscape of beauty, deluge, and disaster.
