Sub-Atl: The Sixth Sun

Sub Atl is a world building project that seeks to explore the mix of the natural world, the contemporary world and a fictitious future world that arose from a natural disaster. It is a visual expression of the research I’ve done on the culture, folklore and aesthetics of Mexico to connect my roots and upbringing to my art practice, which has itself grown in a different country and with many many sources of inspiration.

Acknowledgment

I want to acknowledge that contemporary Mexican culture and aesthetics come from a mix of Spanish, Catholic and Indigenous culture that came to be through a long history of colonization. The knowledge that informed this project is shaped by my experience as a non-Indigenous Mexican person who grew up immersed in this mix of traditions and cultures.
