These screen prints are part of a body of work (in process) about volcanos, that reflects on their relation to the origin of life and the notion of habitable territories. Through the interpretation of volcanos as the genesis of geo-political land, I am reflecting on the ways in which the current global environment has completely mutated through the mobilization of people across continents and countries, putting the traditional ideas of boundaries and frontiers into question. I am drawn to explore the mythical aspect of volcanos as the originators of life, in relation to the mythical character of man-made politics that exist under an imaginary dynamic of authority over nature.
