Artist Statement

The major focus of my research is human behaviors and rules of survival in communities provoking the arousal of eventual narratives that constitute absurdities of human life.

Resembling principles of wild life documentaries versus reality TV programs, I transmute rules of behaviors into my particular realms of Divine Performances.

By making use of my meticulous way of misunderstanding things I create pseudo-theories that could be perfectly plausible for anyone to comprehend.

Thus I play the role an anti-scientist, mainly focused in misleading pre-established ideas into hypothesis that could unfold into new ways of understanding things.
