Ricardo Miranda Zuñiga
Ricardo Miranda Zuñiga is an interdisciplinary visual artist whose work encompasses writing, sculpture, video and audio, the Internet, and public display. The principle behind his work is communication as a creative process for dialogical exchange.
Ricardo Miranda Zuñiga will make use of unsecured wireless networks to present sculptural public net portals in various locations of Manhattan. Seemingly ordinary laundry handcarts serve as portals between our information economy and an agrarian economy, as the carts interface with a kiosk in the oldest market in Nicaragua. The handcarts are reinvented to establish a new public commons for cultural exchange. Via the carts, Nicaraguan folkloric objects are freely made available to New York City pedestrians as a symbolic act giving voice to a gift economy.
