A conversation with Sofía Córdova (She/Her/They/Them). We talk about her work Echoes of a Tumbling Throne, the dangerous inequality perpetuated by the tech industry, Her project "A Body Reorganized", which considers Sanctuary Cities, the history of the term "Sanctuary", and the humans affected by these policies. We have a full-on Star Trek tangent, and get into her band XUXA SANTAMARIA's label Ratskin Records, and life raising a tiny human in 2020. Born in 1985 in Carolina, Puerto Rico and currently based in Oakland, California, Sofía Córdova @yagurmo-yal makes work that considers sci-fi as alternative history, dance music's liberatory potential, the internet, colonial contamination, mystical objects, and extinction and mutation as evolution, within the matrix of class, gender, race, late capitalism and its technologies. She works in performance, video, sound, installation, photography, and sometimes taxidermy.
