Embrace is a tattoo which only becomes complete with an action. This action is a warm embrace and creates a perfect circle. When the tattoo is not in action it is an incomplete line that starts in the middle of the forearm and ends at the tip of the index finger. It’s functional for both people, open up your circle and get hugged. In this circle is a safe space.

A Video to Margarita

These are video stills from A Video to Margarita, which is made up of found family videos and audio that illustrate the experience of my father coming to Canada. This audio becomes somewhat of a video diary to his family in Venezuela and can be seen as a response to Venezuela’s current and ongoing political crisis.
