Bio: 

I am a first year Ph.D. student studying spatial systems across modern art objects, design, and architecture. My earlier research on parks and gardens questions the agency of the choreographed viewer-subject. Shifting focus to discreet objects, I will remain engaged with the art and architecture of Brazil, Perú and other countries in Latin America. Future projects will offer readings of the underlying political, social, cultural and economic contexts of these objects and question the modalities and narratives to which they are bound.   http://rice.academia.edu/AjaMartin
