Preciosa Burbuja (2009) is a silicone and mixed media lighting sculpture with the dimensions of 7 inches aeight x 8 inches adith x ½ inches depth. Precious metals, like gold and silver, were once the basis of all economic transactions. Now we are at the mercy of artificially inflated markets and systems of exchange. The accepted value of goods or services is no longer certain and concrete; everything is uncertain and ephemeral. We are engorged by speculation and illusion, like implanted silicone. Our desires rise like heaving breasts, and upon reaching climax they quickly deflate.
