An Economy of Light is a performance art project that brings together the topics of economics, politics, and art in a narrative that responds to a solution to the financial crisis occurring on the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico. This interdisciplinary performance incorporates diverse components, including an argumentative talk, a stack of freshly printed newspapers, and a video composition, which together offer a holistic view of the subjects that spur the illusory and complex future of this island.
