Transitioning Mirrors is a project that develops from the transformation of materials, such as plastic into metal, with fire as the main transmutation tool. The series focuses on the transition points present in memory, identity, nature and technology. The fellowship will then help me to explore new technological possibilities in this series, which I have been working on for a year. And for its best development, I need greater financial resources such as the purchase of materials and supports.
