“I continue to find inspiration in my retelling of the Pueblo Revolt of 1680 in the futuristic world of 2180. Rarely do I sketch designs on paper. I drape, fabricate and construct my visions into existence. The various garments I create are used to define the individual characters and their personalities within my story. This installation is a visual experience beyond the clay and fashion I have created in the past. It is a unique opportunity to step into the process of how the characters I create are brought to life through my photography and digital art.” – Virgil Ortiz
