Carryover (Blue Tarp Series), 2018-20

What happens when the body replaces the structure?—or rather, what happens when the body becomes the structure to protect? I engage with a blue tarp, which became an iconographic symbol in a Puerto Rico post-hurricane María. These tarps were given by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA, to people who had damage on the roofs of their house. Lots of houses on the island still have these tarps, even after more than a year of the hurricane.
