Abstract: This thesis, The Presence of the Absent, is an autobiographical recounting of the production of my major works from 2006 through 2009. This period was marked by my separation from family and from my native country, Spain — and by my father's suicide. Since I left Spain, I have compensated for the physical absence of my loved ones through the creation of works that, through confining my body, function as thresholds between the (me) here and the (they) there. These works comprise a series of installations and performance pieces. Among my more important influences are the works of the visual artist Carolee Schneemann, and of the writer Milan Kundera.
