About/ Sobre



Érica Mukai Faria,
born in Campinas, Brazil
is an artist based in Philadelphia, USA.

In 2018, Faria founded the Philadelphia Packaging Company,
a collective of nine friends who create meaningful packages-- 
deliberate artifacts of an era marked by disposability.

Faria curates experiences, mixtapes, digital videos, clothing,
and print publications to invite community participation.
Creating images and items that are wearable, usable, shareable,
and free, she actively pushes for a broader understanding of
who art can be for and what art can do.

SAMPLE WRITING  



 KAIBAB 


She is a mountain lying down
like a loaf of bread resting on a table.

They told her that she occurred
by the normal erosional process of
time         stretched       over          a          distance
and by speculating on the inner walls of her body they concluded that it was most certainly the river that cut her and made her
the Canyon
she is today. 
 


APHASIA


Jamie says you are in the water with the horses.
Toward your left shoulder there are the dunes, the waves.
Fifteen moons in fifteen sand pockets.
It was like silver.  I think I love you.


Andra said the horses were lined up facing the road.
It was like funeral. I think I ceremony.

I ran to the water from the East Coast.
I ran to the seal in Santa Monica.
I was looking for the horses
but they were in the waves with the silver.
