I took part in the HELIO workshop marathon at Alumnos 47 this weekend. So fun!
I gave a workshop, with Chavis Mármol, called "Vestuario Escultrual" aka "Sculptural Costume".
Here's an Instagram shot from one of the 8 costumes students created in an hour.

Updating the website at lot! There are some new projects (costumes for two bodies, vanitas, tres torres), as well as the announcement that I am launching a textile consulting company (TROPIC), and hence moving my print and crafty works to a new site in June!

Also, check out this stellar image of the Orb / Orbe 1 Install (courtesy of PJ Rountree). Through June 26 at Casa Maauad, Mexico City!
