Jorge Luis Morín (1996) is a visual and plastic artist from Oaxaca City, México. His work uses the representation of the human body as an evident manifestation of existence through the creation of puppets and characters that serve as a tool and container of individual and collective experiences.

In this series, he used his Mexican roots as an inspiration to create using traditional techniques to manufacture these puppets that represent the vulnerability and ephemeral aspects of life. The dolls embody the lonely and unusual beings that emerge from the rawness of life, where lost in time, hidden from the outside, witness their deteriorative state. They exist only to disappear.

Inside their fabric bodies, we can find thousands of lentil seeds, silently waiting to germinate and merge with the ground, as if they were living beings.
