"Oya" it is an interdisciplinary installation which explore artistically my relationship with the elements. Oya symbolizes wind, hurricanes, tornadoes, twisting storms, death, thunder-bolt, but also adversity. Oya is the wind of change. She is feared by many people because She brings about sudden structural change in people and things. Oya does not just rearrange the furniture in the house - She knocks the building to the ground and blows away the floor tiles. She is the cyclone and the earthquake. Oya fans Her skirts and blows the branches from the trees; should She choose to cry, torrential rains fall on the earth. She is the Mother of Mind. She can impart genius, restore memory, or slap you with insanity. Oya opens Her mouth, flicks out Her tongue, and lightning strikes. No one can be certain of Oya's movement; no one can capture Her smile. She is the mistress of disguises. Oya will shake your soul loose from its foundation; hurl you from the tower of false pride; sweep you clean of debris and madness, and plant you on fresh ground. Oya's duty is to remind us constantly of the brevity of our human lives and the importance of using our time on earth wisely and productively.
