Keep an eye out for my collaboration with O, Miami this month! ¿Para llevar o para tomar aquí? considers the social nature or sharing a box of the pastelitos that Miamians know and love, wrapping that sweet and savory goodness in poetry on paper. Stop by Gilbert's Bakery on 57th Ave. and Bird Road and you can get a poetry-wrapped pastelito of your own throughout the month of April!
What a wonderful semester it has been to engage with students, faculty and visitors to SMFA at Tufts about translation, its challenges, its pitfalls and its role in the law.

Do you understand what I'm saying? is a site-specific installation that explores the imperfections and ambiguities inherent in language and communication. Drawn from my experiences as a court interpreter, the questions printed in vinyl on the glass exude a sense of doubt, power, and intimidation that can be found not only in the court system but in multiple current events, both social and political. On the further wall, the drawings made by hand hint at the more emotional, human experiences at the root of these events - separated, at a distance, and often obscured. It will be on view in Davis Square, day or night, rain or shine, until Dec. 14.
