I have just written the word “infinite.” I have not included that adjective out of mere rhetorical habit; I hereby state that it is not illogical to think that the world is infinite.
Jorge Luis Borges,The Library of Babel
Inspired by writings of Ruben Dario and Jorge Luis Borges, Ilusiones Infinitas is a graphical exploration, through composite prints created from 2018-2020, of the writings of Latin American authors. By layering one page over another, the works are amalgamated into abstract compositions that obsfuscate and also reveal the entire contents of each book. An erasure and preservation at once.
The content, feelings, and memories expressed in these pages are compressed graphically using various printmaking techniques.
