Transgender Euphoria: Puerto Rico’s Queer Exaltation is a two-part installation that depicts the spiritual connection between the island of Puerto Rico and its Transgender inhabitants through the visualization of a multi-generational queer narrative. By abstracting Caribbean seascapes, parts of the Flamboyán tree, chest scars left behind by gender-affirming surgery and coquí frogs through an array of mediums, the ecology of Puerto Rico and the Trans body overlap and create a multi-sensory place wherein visitors may witness the euphoria of Transgender Puerto Ricans.
