My recent work takes over architectural interiors, exploring the possibility of visual illusion and space transformation with the use of perspective. Aiming to addresses a nontraditional experience of space, I use mural painting, large scale drawing interventions and wallpapering as tools to create immersive environments that bring people closer to imagination and to the experience of unconventional sensations, enabling a disorienting encounter with reality.

Most of my installations depict imaginary landscapes inspired in the micro-level of computers and its relationship to urbanism. The way our cities are planned seem to correlate to the structure of a motherboard. Even if we go further into the microscope, we find the structures of neurons to be remarkably similar to that of cities. Are these resemblances related to the nature of interconnectivity? Why are these natural and artificial forms so similar? I don't think there is a difference between the two. Can we compare the micro-structure of computer integrated circuits to the mega-structure of the universe?"

Working with the paradox between traditional media and the digital image, in order to expose an analogy between the real and the virtual, I juxtapose elements; the vast vs. the minute, black and white against color or the curved lines of non-Euclidean perspective to a precise reticule of pixels.

The research that currently nourishes my practice digs into digital physics, astrophysics, information sciences, architecture, philosophy and the theory of complex networks. I find in these studies evidence of the existence of patterns in phenomena of different essence, scale, and source, and proof that information lies at the core of everything we perceive. I attempts with my work to expand our conscience on these ideas.


The involvement of the community in my projects has increasingly taken importance and it can be described into two categories; on the one hand, the making of these large installations requires labor extensive efforts that I am achieving by finding interns and volunteers to work under my guidance, making of these production processes, a learning experience for a younger generation of artists. I aim to transcend my ideas of art as one of the three main branches of knowledge along with philosophy and science. On the other hand, my transformative spaces are set as a canvas for collaborations and interventions from innovators in different fields. By inviting people from the disciplines of astrophysics, sound design, interactive technologies, performance art and music to take part on my work,  I activate the installations opening the possibilities for collective interaction to happen.

I make installations that take over architectural interiors using hand-cut adhesive vinyl, mural painting, large-scale drawing interventions, and wallpapering. Fascinated with the micro vs. macro qualities of space and its variations as we move through these magnitudes, I create immersive environments. My recent research explores geometry, mathematics and physics, to understand space as a platform for the intersection between art, technology, and science in my practice.


My approach to the production of these installations lies on the following questions: Why can we find underlying patterns between natural microstructures and artificial mega-structures? Why are natural and artificial forms so similar? Can we advocate for the real and the virtual to be equivalent? I am using large-scale drawings, collages and paintings to explore these questions by using the installation as an analogy between traditional media and the digital image. My pieces appear to be digitally made yet they are entirely planed, drawn, cut, and produced by hand.


Accordingly, the making of these large installations requires labor extensive efforts that I am achieving by using the exhibition as a platform for integrated education, and art production around the study of art, architecture, and science. Students, interns, and volunteers are working under my guidance to achieve the final result.


On the other hand, these transformative spaces are set as a canvas for collaborations and interventions from makers in different fields. By inviting people from the disciplines of astrophysics, sound design, interactive technologies, performance art and music to take part in my work, I activate the installations opening the possibilities for collective interaction to happen.


I see the future of these endeavors gaining a broader scale in terms of production and collaboration, as I seek a holistic artistic expression that speaks of the theory of everything.
