Mr. Cabrales is a multi-media sculptor who is creating dynamic sculptures and interactive installations, according to a press release, which is says is inspired by a great love for science, math and engineering.

“This installation was conceptualized by the current issues on immigration in the Southwest, as well as the rest of the nation,” said Mr. Cabrales in the release.

His exhibit aims to show the metaphorical restrictions played upon our future and youth by the placement of borders in an area dependent on the free flow of cultures.

His artwork utilizes industrial design and commercialism approaching tough topics through a satirical lens, resulting in artwork that blends social and political concerns of today while beginning an important dialogue started with viewers and participants, states Shade Projects Curator, Nicole Royse, in the release.
