Entry Description: "Soy la arena" / A polyptych composed of 19 photographs. / It was inspired in the song "Olas y arenas" by Puerto Rican singer and songwriter Sylvia Rexach, where she identifies herself with the sand that desires to be touched by the sea but the sea only taunts her and never does. / “Soy la arena, que en la playa está tendida, envidiando otras arenas que le quedan cerca al mar, eres tú la inmensa ola que al venir casi me toca, pero luego te devuelves hacia atrás.”
