My work is developed in the zone where an idea materializes and crisscrosses with another ́s in the interobjective configuration of the space. I try to create pieces that fragment the composition of contemporary human being and evidencing the geometric imperfection in the nature using the gedankenexperiments like beginning.

I have always been fascinated with the philosophical analogies and scientific disciplines, my work has been influenced by the sciences that study the form and the space, I consider myself a believer in matter, an ontologist with a heuristic methodology, sometimes I use technology tools and scientific models as metaphors for collective memory.

I use deconstruction and re contextualization as methods to continue the development of my investigation in areas such as knowledge materializations & the fragility of space. My work is a reflection on the nature of the pieces from the materials used to produce them and their arrangement in the final composition. (Artist Statement)
