Bio:

I am interested in how Systems can be applied in the process of making art, how something can survive within a scheme of convention, exploring the system itself in order to understand it, and perhaps, trying to find a condition of artistic autonomy within the framework I created. Like Mondrian's grids, the abstraction in my work has to survive, and find a place within a defined structure.
My Modus Operandi embraces my passions for electronic, music, science and graphic design.
I like to define myself as a multimedia artist, and my art works as playthings. As with childhood toys, art objects can be seen as many distorted mirrors of the Everyday, a caricature of the real. This sometimes does not need to be pleasant-looking or easy to use has to possess, above all, a high degree of play value, which is what defines the capacity of a Toy/ Artifact to stimulate and engage the viewer. This moves the attention of the spectator in places they probably know, but they have forgotten, unconscious against rational and vice-versa.
