"My practice follows a material investigation on structures, assemblages, and dynamics that evidence states of transitivity and precariousness. The works comprise installations, sculptures, drawings, and photography that address different relations of temporal indetermination. They transform, determine modify, and interfere with the space in which they operate; affecting the way in which the spectator occupies and perceives physical space. The different materials I use in my work are characterized by notions of: tension, scale, volume, weight, gravity, surface, pressure, contention, resistance, depth and limit. Such notions configure systems that produce new relationships between spaces, architectures and the bodies of the spectators. My work explore a latent architectural sensibility that is evident in precarious structures, mostly visible in- but not limited to- everyday urban detritus, overlooked by products of construction, and improvised temporary structures, underscoring a latent sophistication in anonymous ways of doing."
