Hi, I'm Patricia Tinajero. A creative visual thinker artist and philosopher.
I love to garden and pick up unwanted stuff so that I can explore change of natural and artificial properties of matter. I wonder about our capacity for surviving the excesses of consumption and at the same time forlornness of matter.
Body Journal Wall sculpture, cotton pads for removing make-up. Dimensions variable. The collected used cotton pads are a visual journal. Each cotton pad tells the story of each day. But they also tell a bigger story. The story of air pollution. The cotton pad becomes a low-tech biometric sampler to collect air and other material particles from the skin of the face. A chemical panel could easily measure the amount of soot and other pollutants.
