This symbol, which is a blend of indigenous Taino imagery from the Dominican Republic and Ancient Etruscan references from Rome, is a symbol I developed to represent my work and identity. It features Atabey, the Taino goddess of fertility and the earth, the Taino symbol of the sun and Etruscan concentric circles, olive leaves, and the colors on the Italian flag and the Dominican flag.
Based off of a sketchbook doodle and rendered digitally.
digital video of found footage
Using found footage material from my family's archives, I curated moments in my family's past that reflected each other. Pairing moments of dancing, eating and cooking, particular relationships, and more. This was an experiment in using found footage material and editing tools to create a two channel experience. While the footage is very personal to my family, I attempt to evoke a feeling of nostalgia, memory, warmth, and love within life.
