Sensorium is a happening that invites immersion into the “Insula” or the brain section that creates the connections between the senses and the affections. This atmospheric experience is made up of five moments of dialogue between the body and art and explores the capacities of existence of concepts that are articulated primarily through the sense of taste, touch and smell.
Visitors pass through a series of “islands of feeling” that make up the biological and emotional interior of an organism.

Tastes Like Home
Tastes Like Home
Sculpture (flour, salt, polen, hibiscus, achiote, lapis lazuli)
TIER: Institute of Endotic Research.
These sculptures were built for the Taste Like Home exhibition,
where four flavors of candy, explored the meaning and taste of
home in four different geographies.The sculptures that contained
the candy were built completely of edible ingredients such as flour,
salt, polen, achiote, and hibiscus. They distributed the candies around
space and built relationships between them. The sculptures were
made using the technique of mazapán, a traditional ecuadorian craft
made in the day of the dead. The use of mazapán explores the
concept of craft” as “technology“ and welcomes the marks of our
hands as gestures that shape their future.
La (des)integración de la fé
This work is an edible crucifix intended to “raise our faith” and explore
the relationship between religion and the drug industry in Latin America
as containers of similar types of symbolism. This piece investigates
the concept of “devotion”, and the interiorization of a sacrifice, which
is perpetually reproducing itself as a promise but also as a visible
expression of violence.
