Biography

"The time my obsession began as I speak with my changing parts. For this I use the variable mode light cycles and with it the color becomes my "paintings".
But time can not be separated from space, then the color changes to indicate the passage of time elapse somewhere. With light or color or try to interpret imitate Over time, your hand, your continuous motion and our eternally different perception.
All I do is put pieces of land in boxes, as would the Little Prince with his sheep and boring these boxes.
Space and time are the major concerns, yet we have absolutely no control over them, are out of reach, they are kind of holes that can not escape. I intend to work with my consciousness one step and another mutation.
And looking materials that allow me to create the surface needed at all times I was confronted with porcelain, a material that has excited me with its elegance, fragility and turn his incredible strength, and allows highly resistant glaze."
