They say that, "Mexicans are pretty resourceful". The reason we are is because we come from a country were nothing is wasted. Every inch of the bull is eaten. Every car has 50 lives, every appliance at home does too. Our toaster was fixed at least ten times before we disposed of it. We have learned to work with what we have. There are no special tools to fix stuff. There are no clippers or hedge clippers. We have "machetes".
So working with found objects is rather sweet for me, because it allows me to bring an ordinary disposed object and placed it in a different setting giving it a new life.
