Victoria sobre el sol (Victory Over The Sun) 2017
Photo and video documentation

A found mirror was used to reflect the squelching summer sun rays onto Guatemala's Coat of Arms (which shows two Bay Laurel branches symbolizing victory, and a Quetzal, a bird that symbolizes liberty) located on the facade of three main buildings located in Guatemala City: Palacio Nacional, Palacio de Comunicaciones and Palacio de la Policía Nacional, all built during Jorge Ubico Castañeda's presidency (1931-1944) by indigenous laborers, forced without pay under the "Law Against Vagrancy".
