Lives and works in Lagos de Moreno, Mexico

I am fascinated with the idea of existing and the power that this entails, I have tried to create works that have destinies of their own, using the gedankenexperiments like beginning. Having always been fascinated with the philosophical analogies and scientific disciplines, my work has been very influenced by the form and the space, sometimes I using technology tools and scientific models as metaphors for memory an illusion, my work seeks to interpret and represent psychological states. In my work I use various materials and methods such as installation, sculpture, video, sound, painting and digital media, nowadays working on issues such as deconstruct and re contextualize developments in areas such as representation of knowledge, the fragility of space, exploration of audiovisual terms and origin of information, my work is to refer to a reflection on the nature of the piece from order to pose the materials used to made and the place in which it is presented. I have the chance to exhibit in Mexico, Belgium, Holland, South Korea and England, have worked on independent projects as Urbanizarte, Tourista, Artica, LIGA and Bicephalo.
