About works / performance
One of the main concepts in my creative process and research, is the focus in the study of the overlaid time and space sequences at the different urban scales and distances. Home and city (intimate and exterior): "the one in the many and the many in the one".
On one hand is to work on a bigger scale, bringing together parts of the city and create reconstructions from the existing to connect at a visual level what is perhaps disconnected in the physical everyday life; A sort of connection of the vastness of the urban scale.
On the other hand is to investigate and observe the everyday relationship we have with common objects and smaller spaces such as our own home or even a single room.
I like work with textures, light, spaces, that we come in contact on a regular basis; reconstruct objects or situations that we may not see fully because of their commonness. I'm interested in what gets us to stop and look, as opposed to simply consuming images passively.
