Born in 1971 in Colombia
Lives and works in Bogotá, Colombia

My work explores the potential of a diverse range of media including installation, video, sculpture, computer graphics and photography. In my most recent work, I see it is influenced by a strong interest in the concept of “prototype”, understood as a primal idea that shapes the objects and devices that surround us. I am also interested in language as a cultural construction; mainly in terms of how language determines the way we understand the material world by creating categories and mental structures. That is the reason why my practice seeks to find a space where established systems of communication break down and gradually disappear, through the delicate articulation of the invisible. This is achieved by drawing attention to overlooked forms, or by giving shape to the imaginary. Specifically, I use and refer to architectural and design elements, both in a physical and psychological way, in order to create “mental spaces” where the spectator is invited to enter another world configuration.
