Peñafiel constructs multimedia installations, videos, and photographs that revise history and social issues, and

 their connections with injustice, absurdity, perpetuity, and conformity. His works enable a parade of fantasy, and

 irrational imagery, transmuting into abstracted and ambiguous environments that embody a destabilized

 perpetual loop of paradoxical realities. He breaks down on the materiality and immateriality of the mediums, a

 push and pull of virtual compositions and physical objects playing-off of each other to create incongruous

 experiences. Aware of personal and collective social experiences as a migrant, Peñafiel examines displacement

 and history from multiple perspectives and their association with fear, exploitation, injustice, parasitism,

 subjugation, relief, and liberty.
