After a visit to California, Cuban artist Jose Bedia proposed to address the subject of cultural mythology and modes of transportation in his installation "Sails Project/Proyecto de velas para navegar." Covering the entrance façade of the Santa Fe Depot in downtown San Diego with large yellow sails displaying silhouettes of mythological figures, Bedia's piece explored issues of Colonization and the subjugation and preservation of culture. Incorporating the names of Native American tribes and John Henry, it touched on California's past and in turn brought about a consideration of the confluence of cultures between Mexico and the US. - inSITE94
