Quake / Temblor

After encountering my civil engineer father's diagnostic photographs of the 1985 Mexico City earthquake amidst family photographs, I created Quake/Temblor to explore the intimate rapport between human and geographic disaster. The project includes engravings on formica tables, prints, text, sound, and videos. As part of the project, I staged a happening on a seismic shake table, during which participants reenacted life before, during, and after a quake in a bedroom and living room set and structural engineers applied a seismic record from the 1985 Mexico City earthquake to the dining room set.
