Soy is an exploration of identity and the environments that make us who we are. It reflects a stream of consciousness and how we perceive the physical world, converting it into something we can grasp. Fast video editing and boom bap beats make up the rhythm that keeps the piece together and always moving forward.
“I find meaning and peace in the whirlwind of the streets, pueblos, and everyday people who make up this world. It's the small details in everyday life that often hold the most truth.” —C.M.
