Jorge Palacios

Grad Student
Environmental Art + Social Practice MFA Candidate

Jorge (they/them) is a multimedia artist and anthropologist from Yanaguana/Somi Se'k/San Antonio, Texas. They hold an MA in Social Sciences with a concentration in Anthropology from the University of Chicago, a BFA in Glass from Rhode Island School of Design, and a B.S. in Astrophysics from Brown University. Jorge's ongoing ethnographic research studies how SpaceX's efforts at colonizing Mars have drastically affected South Texas through their settlement, rocket launches, and explosions. They build off of this critical work through installation, video games, digital media, and glassblowing as a means of finding alternative ways of relating to land, science, technology, and the environment with respect to Indigenous histories/cosmologies, decolonial politics, craft practices, and embodied knowledge.
