Fabrica Mundi I (academic exit strategies) is a large scale drawing made directly on the walls of the Mason Gross School of the Arts Galleries and two objects made primarily with paper and found materials. Since This space is not a neutral white cube,I decided to paint the walls using only the official colors of Rutgers University to give place to the information collected on my artistic driven research. I layered illustrations and text from the archives I encountered to build a poetic construction that does not propose a set narrative but aims to weave a particular mythology. These schematic drawings on the walls display an arrangement of disparate sources, recontextualizing them to build a speculative approach to history that encapsulates past and future. They constitute a symbolic grammar that aims for the articulation of a shift in our current time/space. On the floor of the gallery there are two pieces: Icarus, made with handmade cud paper, and Aya, a paper mache headset that was activated on the last day of the show.
