Early in her artistic career, Daisy Quezada came across a real-life scene with all the power of an omen. She and her mother had ventured to their old house in Jalisco, Mexico, which was long abandoned. They leapt across the tall stepping-stones in the enclosed yard outside—formerly a pigpen—and found the interior ransacked. It was common for people to hide money and valuables in the walls or floors of their homes, so strangers had torn the place apart in the time since the family moved back to the United States.
