My motivation in making art lies in finding ways to attract other people’s attention to topics that are important to me, through realizations in different media. This is how I try to provoke in them a reflection about what it means to live in the world today.
My visual thinking focuses on observing and questioning the place that the human being occupies on planet earth, and understanding the power that societies have exercised over different territories and their wealth.
I am especially interested in data visualization methods and the tools that allow the collection and analysis of information from the natural world. Scientific and para-scientific resources such as measurement, cartography, landscape photography, filming or recording of various phenomena.
