Land and Sea: Watch where the branches of the willows bend; See where the waters of the rivers tend; Graves in the rock, cradles in the sand; Every land is the holy land –Ursula K. LeGuin

Black buoy covered in marine growth, including pink barnacles and white tubeworms that are scattered across its surface. Against a black background.

Inside this, another animal grows, then another, another. Eventually there are hundreds of thousands.

Panoramic photo of a sepia-toned garden. In the right corner a woman tends to plants with a one story home in the background.

The Pacific Rim is the land around the edge of the Pacific Ocean. I come from that edge: I am half Filipino, and half white. Born and raised in Los Angeles, CA on one side of the Pacific Ocean, I am obsessed with connecting to that other side of it—back to my Motherland, the Philippines.

Multicolor singular disk with a cube pattern on it. Out of focus ocean and horizon background.

discomforting circularity turns in my stomach, thinking about Santa Monica’s full-circle from place of work to ‘workplace.’

A narrow alley in Los Angeles. To its left is a screen protecting pedestrians from the highway. To its right is the LA River Bridge.

On February 22nd, I walked from my house in Northeast Los Angeles to the ocean in Venice Beach. I recorded the nearly 9 hour, 20 mile walk along highways, under bridges, and through different neighborhoods with binaural in-ear microphones.

Close up of white mineral rock.

In the fall of 2020, I began gathering samples for what I’ve termed an Anthropogenic Mineral Collection. These carbon-based minerals consist of human-mediated byproducts of geological intervention from the Industrial Revolution to the present. The majority of those in my collection are caused by industrial mining of valuable conductors, and have not been recorded elsewhere as natural occurrences.

Colonialism is rooted in the planetary imagination which fails to account for histories of structural racism based on geologic relations and the violent dispossession of indigenous lands. This resulted in legacies of destructive cartography and mapping now used in machine vision in space.
