Sediment Salad, 2015 departs from observing the transformation of my home town of San Juan, its political and social conditions and expressions in its built environment from the framework of American occupation to the hysteria of contemporary capitalist consumerism. The sculptures in the installation are made of concrete dipped into fresh tropical fruits, vegetables found in supermarkets and consumer products such as towels and paperback books and fast food menu items. The sculptures decay during the course of the exhibition filling the room with the scent of its perishables decomposing aroma.
