Transitivo is a memorial/installation created in collaboration with Mary Carothers (visuals) and John Ritz (sound) to honor the 29500 men who perished during the construction of the Panama Canal (1880-1914). These men's efforts mark one of the most difficult engineering projects ever undertaken throughout the course of word history. Because of their dedication, the Panama Canal links the Pacific and Atlantic Ocean and has replaced the long and treacherous route via the Drake Passage and Cape Horn at the southmost tip of South America.
