"In a city that is exposed to a continuum of development and re-development, the subject of displacement renders its spaces its margins  and its people, in constant flux under an imposed system of order, of regularity, of certainty and of uniformity, where intangible boundaries and margins are also in constant mutation and formation. 
The stone quarries in this body of work are a metaphor for the concept of displacement. The system that is imposed; the grid that is a symbol of modernity dressed onto the mountain, cutting it into fragments like Lego pieces, systematically ordered, and patiently waiting in line for their assembly. 
This is what we are left with, then, a negative space that by itself is a geometric ensemble of grids, layers and fragments. A symbol of a fabricated reality that artificially structures and holds its own determination and potentiality. A symbol of the alien inserted into the familiar landscape—flattened, geometricized, ordered, anti-natural, anti-mimetic, anti-real."
