Installation with two channel video, sound and two large photos . Transnacional is my attempt as an artist to describe a complex web of shared people, resources, eco systems and language. The porosity of the border that becomes clear by people crossing those boundaries on a daily basis to work, to go to school, to shop, to go to church, to visit family, and an infinite array of other reasons.

Norte y Sur is an experimental documentary that uses family as a reference point to
explore issues related to their “migrant experience”.
This experimental documentary uses an economic and linear narrative to tell the story of a group of people on a journey across the dessert attempting to cross the border. These events are contrasted with seductive desert landscapes, and hypnotic soundtrack questioning the politics of segregation and oppression.
Why do we keep opening doors and entering new spaces if the doors just close behind us, and we are left as we were... wet, soft, dirty, and alone?
In this experimental film the filmmaker explores early childhood memories as well as his experiences illegally crossing the US-Mexican border.
