"Tzolk'in Memorial to Claudia Gómez González" is now on view via AR (augmented reality--the app is called 4th Wall) by the Rio Grande, by the border area where this beautiful 20-year old woman was shot and killed by a border patrol agent. I am so grateful to have been invited to be part of this amazing AR project designed and conceived by @nancybakercahill, that gives me the opportunity to honor Claudia Gómez González at the place where she lost her life, which was full of promise. I want to thank @alejandramunox for going to the site, and taking these beautiful photographs of my piece, from the river banks on the Nuevo Laredo, Mexico side. I also want to thank @rosadelcc and @hernandezartsphotos for their support. My gratitude also to Clockshop, the institution that supported me in the creation of the original sculpture, Tzolk'in at the Bowtie Project by the LA River, and to Gina Clyne, who took the original photograph of the piece that now has become a floating garden on the Rio Grande. Collaborating with Nancy on this project, being part of this community of artists, and joining forces at an international level to be able to place a virtual version of Tzolk'in as a memorial to her, has brought me enormous gifts of the spirit, thank you so much to all.
