To explore the relationships between 
space, image & sound

To question /
the occupation of space
the occupation of emptiness
the occupation of whiteness

To put oneself in an architect´s skin /
to mesure, draw, arrange, create, elevate, 

To erect abstract forms that are /
spatially volumetric
acoustically volumetric

To play /
with the viewing angles: plan, elevation, 
axonometric, and isometric projection 
with the spatial orientation benchmarks XYZ
with the limits of the frame: ceiling, walls, floor

To investigate /
the cityscape
the sound landscape
the mental landscape

Coming from an architecture background my work is based on its codes  that I misappropriate, with the aim of bringing a new focus on the norms of measurement.My practice consists mostly of photography, video, sculpture, and sound performance in which I experiment with the geometry in space.Echos in a space, shadows on a facade, melodies produced by construction elements: the resulting forms I obtain give shape to the immaterial.
