If only it were that simple

 

 

Here you have my submission to the Adidas Eyewear Contest for the Santiago Sunnies below.

I approached this challenge by designing “my dream sunnies for this summer”.

The pattern design was taken out of a collage I made about a year ago where I combined stops of paper to create a multi-dimensional field.

you can check out the collage on the link below:

La Carta de la Sra Antonia

La Carta de la Sra Antonia

Hoy me levante triste y sola.
Mi esposo amado esta muerto.
Sudo todo el dia para sacar adelante a mis niñas.
Hago lo que sea necesario para darnos de comer.
Aunque vivo en un cronico cansansio,
Obligo a mi corazon a que sienta esperanza verdadera.
Tu amor siempre me da fortaleza, porque mantengo tu ruecuerdo

No sabia que era panico lo que sentia.
No fue a proposito si lo enfrente de la manera incorrecta.
Yo se que te heri, pero tambien me heria a mi.
Ya que lo que hoy yo siento, es dolor de todo lo que no te di.
Era joven, y extranaba a tu padre.
Tenia responsabilidades de un nivel al que mi educacion y crecimiento no calificaban.
Te ame de mi manera. Y hoy te amo de otra.
Estoy tan orgullosa de ti hija!

Hoy vivo en un mismo dolor.
El dolor de la partida de tu padre.
El dolor de la partida de mi quinta hija.
El dolor de la partida de mi Veronica preciosa.
El dolor de la partida de mis nietos.
El dolor de la partida de tu padrastro.
El dolor de la partida de todos aquellos que fueron parte de mi vida, y que ahora ya no estan cerca.

Todas partidas,sintoma secundario de cambio.
Unos positivos, y otros que sentian como que no tanto.
Pero sabes que es lo mas importnte hija?
Todos los cambios son parte de el divino plan de dios omnipresente.

Si. Me levante un poco triste y sola.
Con ese cronico cansansio, y lamentando mi pasado.
Pero esa omnipresencia de la ultima linea es lo unico,
Que le da paz a esta vieja cabeza.
Paz de saber que Dios tiene todo bajo control.

GAZING AT THE MOON

We are studying visual artist Rogelio Polesello in class.
Such research has caused me to currently be amused by the shape of a circle.
The eternity of the line itself that makes the circle,
And the depth of endless possibilities inside this eternal shape.
All of this in parallel with the ability an artist has to create a moment.
Sometimes a moment that although not “eternal”,
Comes as close as we can get to being able to “create” something eternal,
Taking my time to think about all of this is important to my visual brain,
Because it at least makes me think that I might grasp a bit better the idea of eternity.
Specially when I think of clothing, or recipes, or music;
Things that were already there. Created by God. Discovered by someone.
Most importantly, things that now are an important part of life.
All of them appearing as if they have existed forever
Specially to people like me. Born in an era where there was already a norm.
And yes…I know this might be a vain way to attempt to understand eternity.
But to me, it helps as a reminder that God is the beginning and the end.
If I get overwhelmed by the idea of an item having existed for so long in history.
then I have nothing left but to be in awe at the fact that God has always been.
God is everywhere. We don’t create anything.
May I always give the Glory to Him.
