My work is characterized by the continuous displacement and use of diverse media and materials.The openness towards these media helps me defining the development of an artistic proposal, where the object’s time and history take a fundamental importance within the plastic discourse. Im interested in the relation between different cultures and histories, between the so-called center and its periphery. The position of distance about cultural,economic and social events constitute an important part in the process and execution of my projects. I find myself attracted to the residues of civilization and culture. I am interested in using this materials for my work. In the last years my work has been related to nonplaces, transit and movement mapping myself and my identity .
