IMAGE 1 - USA Paradisiaca, 2001, performance/mixed media, various dimensions. - I host a comprehensive presentation on the plantain at a restaurant, while performing in collaboration with the staff. Guests join regular patrons of a Latino restaurant in Queens to sample what to many of them is “the other” in a dinner consisting of five dishes made out of a subtropical fruit, the plantain. In this piece the plantain and the immigrant are interchangeable subjects of a visual/edible presentation that warns the audience to watch out for the indelible stains that can result from handling this specimen.

IMAGE 2 - The Flag, 2003-, performance/installation, various dimensions. - I create a proposal for the first Dominican York flag: a hybrid produced out of two ready-mades: the Dominican flag and the US flag. I include photographs and artifacts that relate to the making of ‘The Flag’ as a mean to insert the project into the historical context of the aforementioned patriotic symbols.
