View of Óxido at Expo Chicago 2016.

 

 

Óxido is an installation formed by a collection of old copperplates that were previously engraved by other artists. I intervened these by selecting certain areas and subjecting them to extended treatments with acid mordants. Its once visible stories have now partially or totally disappeared, transforming into clouds of chemical and mineral residues which contain layers of temporalities.
