" 'Trayectos' se inspira en los viajes, las mudanzas, los cambios y desplazamientos físicos que nos modifican y se convierten en parte de nuestro nuevo yo. 'Trayectos' coincide con el nuevo mapa que se arma al andar de un espacio a otro, y para mí de experimentar la tridimensionalidad con nuevos recursos." - Miriam Medrez
