I recently made a series of works that have titles that come from the songs on a salsa album called Siembra. As part of a recent exhibition, I made several sculptures with names from that album. This piece is called Plástico, like one of those songs. The work is also part of a long series of assemblages where I use found objects that dialogue with each other and become a unit.

The green and pink colors come from a very specific reference, a Brazilian artist named Hélio Oiticica, who went to dance at the samba school in the Mangueira favela, whose flag is green and pink. It's usually a very satin, shiny pink, and the green is very matte, like chalkboard. This means that things can be written on one side, and one can be reflected on the other.

What I do is recover objects from reality that are already made, they are things that already existed, and I make an arrangement with them, like in Japanese ikebana. These objects make sense as a whole, but also, from the capture in real time and space, in three dimensions, a file is created that allows us to print it in series, regardless of my existence.
