This series is made up of three totems made with pieces of different origins: from a pencil holder, a soap dish, a piggy bank, tiles, wooden pieces... All these objects are selected for their original shape and the totems are built through compositions. The agreed color range makes them part of a new universe, a new life, and they mimic each other. I have called them “Recycled Trophies”, which define their origin and their new place in the world. The human being manufactures many objects, and also discards many of them, making the effort to build from them is a challenge that stimulates my creativity, many of my works are based on that premise: reuse.
