Reading is a creative act that brings a text to life and allows it to unfold into new contexts and acquire new meanings. The artist explores the act of engaging with the ideas of French philosophers such as Deleuze, Guattari, Clastres, or Foucault from her own experience and in conversation with other Central American thinkers in Los Angeles and in Central America as an active process of creation and transformation across borders, and across time and space.
