Tortillas date back as far as 10,000 years before Christ. It was a staple food of the Aztecs and other civilizations that populated Meso-America. Even to this day the ancient method of making tortillas is practiced.
These tortillas are screen printed with my own homemade edible ink. The work is a reflection of the conquest of Native Americans and current prejudice views towards Latino immigrants.
People are invited to eat the art at no cost during performances held in the street. With the assistant of local Baltimore youth we engage the public in conversations regarding community solidarity, immigration, and the oppression of native people that occurs through out the Americas.
