El Barrio

2015 | Salvaged wood wall piece
85 cm x 90 cm

I’m really interested in how cities work, how they have been built up over many years, the infrastructure and systems that make them work. With this piece I am imagining looking down on an environment and catching glimpses of what has been previously constructed.
El Barrio means the neighbourhood in Spanish. The word barrio is used in the U.S as the Latino equivalent of the ghetto.
