I believe in an art that act like an alarm for walking more aware through the world, and allow us to see it as if it were for the first time, with the privileged look of a child. Making noticeable the imperceptible.
I’m interested in the interstice between the visible and the invisible, between sound and silence, between the similarity and the difference, between ephemeral and the eternal.
Like magic, art is an act of transformation, which can be as simple as making a coincidence to happen.
