Art pieces of tiles and Dolphin bones
Waylon uses the iconic Islamic-Iberian ceramic tile-work, in order to produce azulejos in various mediums, to touch upon current development or consumption in the state that we unknowingly revere as new symbols to edify, while acknowledging of the older ecosystems that provide us with intangible benifits of clean air, water and food that are displaced into history, things we admire or has tied culture, ecology and local economics into resilience.
Here the Indian humpback dolphin is used as the poster child of coastal life whose backbone is dissected by the scaping of state arteries, fragmented by an arena of shareholders to produce the iconography we shall inherit.
