In My Alien Abduction, Garcia creates enigmatic symbology to mythologize the act of abduction through appropriation. Garcia pursues his need to recover that which was taken from him through the manipulation of a digital program that in and of itself is a device of appropriation. The result is a series of images that serves the myth of power by taking that of others and making it one’s own.
