Chroma Key After Me is a visionary exploration of a disabled utopia, expressed through soundscapes, sculpture, and video. Granados delves into the nuances of identity, drawing on family history, socioeconomic status, and disability within the context of utopian ideals. The exhibition features miniature ceramic dioramas, skillfully reconstructing childhood landscapes from memory. Through this evocative blend of mediums, Granados challenges societal norms, inviting viewers to reconsider disability within the realm of utopian possibilities. The project serves as a thought-provoking narrative, transcending artistic boundaries to provoke reflection on identity, nostalgia, and the pursuit of utopia amidst disability.
