Tengo Hambre

Maximo Gonzalez's avatar Maximo Gonzalez

''I'm Hungry' is based on a technique that can be found in many countries where a proper noun is written on a grain of rice and encapsulated inside a crystal in order for it to be worn as a necklace. Instead, Máximo asked the craftsman to write 'Tengo hambre' (I'm hungry) on each grain. Each one of the capsules is then set in the wall generating a crystalline mural that the audience barely notices.
