APT. 9D finds connections between New York and Puerto Rico through the apartment interior. Showing how the home maintains cultural traditions of any diaspora, the works utilize iconography of the Nuyorican community in collaboration with Puerto Rican and Taíno themes. Using mixed media techniques and interactive approaches, the work extends the personal home with its viewers and reminds us warmly of home, as well as the connection with those on the Island post hurricane.
