Marina started doing ceramics at the age of 7 in Argentina and has continued working with clay since. Although her primary occupation is not an artist (PhD in Political Economy), art has always been an important component of her life and in many ways a guiding force, applying concepts of hegemony, instability, and naïvite as visual cues. In New York, at Parsons, she discovered murals and the technique of tile making and molds. In awe of the possibilities she expanded the compositions to mixed media: ceramic, glass and metal. From there the missing piece was technique, which she aquired thanks to the generosity of Laura Robbins.
