Alien
at home 

(Mixed media piece with film photography and digital manipulation)

I went to Colombia after 5 years and it was the second time (of 4) that I had been as a tourist rather 
than the secondary home seeing extended family.

Coming back with adult eyes, man my country is beautiful. The vastness of nature and it normality. My soul felt cleansed. I truly felt like an alien who had been trapped by concrete and electric. Home to an endless jungle. 

So I made this piece as if I am an alien traveling through multiple lands, and the contrast of some worlds embracing modernity, whilst rejecting tradition. and reality of what this planet should look like. Gaea made us a home and there are many places that have her as an equal roommate, while others have her under the stairs.
