Ricardo Miranda Zúñiga is a dad, artist and professor. In his creative and pedagogical work, Ricardo seeks to establish dialogue in public spaces to help generate reflection and question individualism. Having been born of immigrant parents and grown up between Nicaragua and San Francisco, a strong awareness of inequality and discrimination was established at an early age. The ways that inequality and power manifest themselves in our lives are consistent threads in Ricardo's work. Themes such as immigration, discrimination, gentrification and the effects of commodification/monetization extend from highly subjective experiences and observations into works that tactically engage others through popular metaphors. Ricardo maintains a research-based practice that combines the hand-made with emerging technologies to present content in a manner that may generate interaction and discussion amongst participants/viewers/users.
