About works / performance

I have been producing several bodies of work, the first one "capsulas" are pieces made out of fiberglass with a flocked exterior, and using a system of lenses and light these pieces show fragments of architectural interiors spaces inside. "Alternancias" is constituted by a series of installations that create using LEDs and "persistence of vision" (aka. POV) device combinations of words that spin around and produce the effect of leaving phrases suspended in the air. And "proyecciones" are pieces that use sensors, computer vision and software to process information from the space.












In my work, the importance is the use of light, time and perception. I am interested to infuse the work with different layers allowing multiple levels of understanding and I am trying to create a situation in which the mechanisms disappear directing the spectator to the awareness of his own presence and perception.
