Intro
The work "Not For Sale" is born out of the analysis on the clash between the economic crisis that can now be felt globally and the growing crisis of values that accompanies it. The pieces are presented as pins (silver and gold) over photography.

In a time when "I think therefore I exist" seems to have been replace by "I have therefore I exist", all seems to be for sale, and all seems to be monetarily valued on the “stock market of perversion” generated and managed by the existing capitalist system. This system doesn’t give due importance to the needs of the individual because the individual itself is compelled to integrate that very same materialist system to ensure his survival on the stage of useless looks, leading to suffering and sense of desperation when they cannot be achieved. The “empire of matter” is predominant, but it does not truly value the Human Being is its authenticity.

The “Human-Being” can and should predominate over the “human-Having”. It’s important for me to empathize that there are “immaterial things” that cannot be traded has products, like trust, friendship, love, memories, dreams, joy, innocence, hope, etc. They are values whose true essence ban any kind of financial valuing, but that manifest themselves as values that permit the satisfactory and genuine richness of the Human Being.

The work "Not For Sale" is born out of the analysis on the clash between the economic crisis that can now be felt globally and the growing crisis of values that accompanies it. The pieces are presented as pins (silver and gold) over photography.
