Acquiring science and archaeology to disrupt the way we get to know our world. In Gabriela Salazar's statue Matter in Shelter (and Place, Puerto Rico), the pictorial vocabulary of transitional accommodations constructed after storms or the semi-periods to shelter young coffe eplants is used as a comment on her own history and climatic changes.
Salazar's work reflects on the frailty of the constructed environment and emphasizes the ironic place of cement in it; it is a basic building block for creating textures that can resist climate-induced storms as well as releasing large quantities of CO2 as they are made. Further participating artist in Indicators are David Brooks, Dear Climat, Ellie Ga, Justin Brice Guariglia, Allison Janae Hamilton, Jenny Kendler, Maya Lin, Mary Mattingly, Alan Michelson, Mike Nelson, Steve Rowell, Rebecca Smith, Tavares Strachan, Meg Webster and Hara Woltz.
