Una historia personal, 2021. Aquí están fotografiados Marcia (izquierda) y mi amigo Osiel (derecha). Le rasuré la cabeza y le pinté el rostro con color blanco para la imagen, e hice lo mismo conmigo. Luego, pasamos un tiempo en silencio. Mientras estaban sentados frente a frente. ¿Alguna vez ha amado tanto a alguien que no puede evitar que sus energías choquen?

A Personal Story, 2021. Pictured here are Marcia (left) and my friend Osiel (right). I shaved his head and painted his face white for the image, and I did the same to myself. We then spent time in silence. As they sat face-to-face, staring at each other, I wrapped their heads together with wire. Have you ever loved someone so much your energies can't help but clash?
