…stains, inscriptions, material plots, molten metals, doodles, chipped, secretions, tartars, striae, leporosy, excrescences,
microcosms of every kind arranged randomly, on a wall…
Umberto Eco

This body of work was photographed at the former penitentiary of San Luis Potosí, Mexico. The images are my re-interpretation and intervention of icons left behind by the absent occupants and presenting them as residues, prints or remnants. These faded graphic traces appear to me like archeological ruins, having crossed through layers of matter and time. They bear someone else’s nostalgia representing connections between the inside/outside and revealing fragmented or fractured psychological landscapes.
