305 Megapascales was an open statement about conflict and resistance between the past and present and what it means to honor tradition. This exhibition explored the structures of traditional practices and concerns about the extinction of trusted processes while confronting new, industrial influences. By honing in on one specific material, sisa—which is a Mexican agave with large fleshy leaves that is cultivated for fiber production—305 Megapascales investigated connections between humankind and nature, nature's relationship to industrialization, and how heritage and tradition influence the creative process.

305 Megapascales was on view from September 25-October 19, 2014 at the Museo Antropológico y de Arte Contemporáneo in Guayaquil, Ecuador.
