statement
Machines, Nature, the human, the idea of cyborg, softness, waste, biology, anthropology, misery, villainy, spas, wellness, runners and drones. My cactus, the ergonomic flowers of my cactus, my palm trees, the tenderness of certain synthetic materials and all the plastic that surrounds us, especially that annoying plastic. Cyberpunk, the cleaning Apple communication language, the Super digital states of Assage, Bauman’s Liquid Modernity, fitness, large shopping malls and their desire to capitalize your desire of countryside, nostalgia for the future, pathogen deficit, silicone, fashion and injuries, fashionable injuries, stones, Icloud, tectonic movements, consumer objects, Zeitgeist and the new tendencies of capitalism.  The strategy of post-consumer society by confusing progress with technology moves me and the speed with which that error is propagated and established as an axiom.

Certain anthropological methods study extinct civilizations through the remains of the objects they created and identified them as a society. I’m interest in investigating the dichotomy of progress / technology from an artistic position contributing to an anthropological account.  My work is the development of a hypothesis on aspects of human behavior in the digital age, through objects of consumption, their function and the idea of ​​adaptation and ergonomics.
