"This photographic series was taken just a week and a half before hurricane María devastated my homeland and developed the same day it caused mass destruction. Some would say this was mere coincidence but for me, it carries an immense sense of unconscious premonition. Being able to capture this presage alerts and amazes me about how frequently our ordinary, normal and traditional daily routines are overflowing with visible and powerful signals. However, most of them remain completely occult in a society that values a constant state of unobservant and unmindful beings. For this reason, the persistent and frequent use of art is and must be a practice of definite rooting, insight, broad-mindedness, and resistance that counteracts the excess numbness and insensitiveness that currently plague our society and makes the visible invisible."
