Originally trained as an engineer, the artworks of Fernando Palma Rodríguez blur the boundaries between nature, technology and art. In the words of the artist, “Nature has been replaced by the transistor”.
In this video, enter the artist’s home and studio in Milpa Alta, formerly a separate rural community but now subsumed into the ever-expanding Mexico City. Rodríguez introduces us to his family, the Mexican landscape that is so influential to his work, and to his alter ego: the coyotl.
