The present is an ongoing series of interactive projects where I create an environment that I live in publicly as a work of art. Equal parts museum, architecture, design, performance, studio, showroom, home and sanctuary, The present. is an experience for visitors to interact directly with an artist who is immersed in the process of creation. See art from the inside out, the art between the arts.

Individual 1 hour appointments are available throughout the day for Rodriguez to create a hand painted sketch of one personal, potentially meaningful object that participants are invited to bring along to their sessions. The project is also documented + produced as digital media for sharing exclusive details of The present., as it unfolds, directly from the artist’s perspective.
