As I look at myself in the mirror and photograph myself as men I'm looking for answers and qualities to borrow from them. Why men? In my view, because men have optionality on their identities and can fluctuate between their different personas with ease and acceptance.
For the past 6 months I've revisited a project I left behind many years ago: Agua the Carnaval. I've revisited the project in a new context and somehow resulted on my first solo show. When I created the original concepts of Agua the Carnaval in 2008 my goal was to communicate what it meant to be Panamanian. I had chosen to do so by creating a product for consumption.
