These are a series of prints that explores the different meanings that the word America has in both Spanish and English. Coming from Colombia, I grew up being American, but lost this identity when I moved to the United States, where I became an alien. I am fascinated by how a small typographic change, a single glyph that switches from e to é, transforms the whole meaning of a word. A name that defines the identity of millions of people. A single glyph, the absence of an accent, can rob your identity.
