Viscera is a performance object and installation made of 1.5-in-diameter cotton tubing and 200 feet in length filled with pinto beans and stained with guajillo peppers. Viscera overcomes a space as an attempt to engage in a conversation about my body and lineage and re-territorialization. With this work, I speculate on how objects can aid my way of processing place, belonging, and heritage among other ideologies. Viscera is made of materials that come from my own biographic mythology and takes over a new space I currently inhabit like my rental home, the University institution, etc. I hope to continue extending this work and exploring other machines and assemblages of digestion.
