This piece attempts to combine the indigenous Native American culture, represented by the blue ceramic blocks of wood, and the American culture that took over its land, turning it into a capitalistic “amusement park”, represented by the marshmallow fire. Despite the tension it raises, the work attempts to create a harmony between these two cultures, expressed in the creation of a common heat and light source.
