Excerpt:

Portobelo Project

I was invited by Arturo Lindsay to travel to Portobelo, Panama during the summer of 2005 to create a site-specific project in the jungle. Armed with anti-malarial medication and many ideas, I traveled to the Central American country. Panama is a land of lush jungles, super sized insects and a mestizo culture informed by the descendents of indigenous native peoples, slaves from the Congo, and Spanish colonists. Like my African forbears, I entered the rain forest; and, thus, began my journey.
