4645 + 1

In the wake of New Year and on to new beginnings I had the opportunity of interviewing Megan Tatiana Convey Gómez, aka. @LaMeganConveyGomez on Instagram, as she traveled from Chicago, Illinois to San Juan, Puerto Rico to honor and pay homage to the 4645+1 victims of Hurricane María. This ritualistic performance intakes the toll of the 4645+1 lives lost by doing a, seemingly, never-ending sequence of Sun Salutations. Each Salutation embodies a prayer, a silent contemplation for every victim. A solemn commemoration from every place the artist visits until she has reached 4645+1. Here is our talk about her creative process, her formation and the development of “4645+1”. – Aisha Perez Gonzalez
