work in progress ii

rise x fall is an in-progress multimedia collaboration between, maximiliano, Jaleesa Johnston, and rubén garcía marrufo. Conjured from liminal space, this work considers the rise and fall of an empire, and the possibilities between stability and instability. Taking inspiration from the ocean’s crashing waves against the earth, rise x fall simultaneously inhabits the space between the pain and fear of death, as well as the hope and growth of rebirth.
