Since 2008 I’ve been mainly working in the field of Video-Art and using the internet as the main platform of “distribution”, ever since then, the interest on approaching both “means of expression” in a single object has been intensifying and been part of my artistic practice.

My works have been using video as the main tool towards the development of visual narratives  and the internet as a mean to communicate them, a “virtual stage” that allows those same narratives to spread and reach an unknown audience, that collaboratively experience the art object.

Having been, since 2010, involved in projects that often revolve around these tools as a way to communicate larger concepts, such asTelematic Art, their proximity and relation has been unveiling and the symbiosis between them is an on-going work of transformation, a process that I aim in future projects to also include in my work.

Following the above mentioned interests it is of my interest to dive deeper in a more accurate study of how the abstract nature of thisTransmedia movement allows to alter and modify notions of space, presence, privacy and, amongst others, be part of a new revolution of where both spectator and performer stand.

My projects do not follow a reasonable continuity, although they all belong to the same body of work. Each one, even different and unique, is a result of all the concepts and questions that arise from the above urgencies.

Each one is the translation of a quest for different resources used towards a specific determined ending, a result that is part of that same abstract nature, inherent to every artistic practice.

Throughout the last couple of months the IDENTITY PROJECT has been growing into some very interesting dimensions.

Started out just as an idea for an artistic research on the subject of Identity and the need for labelling as a form of understanding it, the project has become a live-video-performance with some results that float around its own making.
