Mario in Marmo is about diaspora. Mario in Marmo is about cultural identity. Mario in Marmo is about memes and materials.

Yes, this work is very much concerned with the Italian Diaspora. It is about understanding having a sense of place and feelings of placelessness. 

It is about history; erased and unusable history, the absurd process of telling that history. 

Mario in Marmo is a Japanese depiction of an Italian American stereotype disrupted in Italian marble.

Mario in Marmo is currently in NJ where I am building the static framework to freeze its flux.
