just add water (2018)
4,177 lentil sprouts, plastic containers, towel paper, poem.
A project that describes the exploration of an interspecies relationship. For 50 days the artist was exposed to the germination and cultivation of lentil seeds. Through installation and a scientific journal-poem, this shows how relationships are sometimes painful, but also covered of mystery and hope.
As this relationship continues, the project is evolving to serve as the way the artist spreads the plants through the city as an act of resistance against the conditions set by a system that offers an obscure future and a possible ecological catastrophe.
Acrylic domes, organic matter, webcam and microscope live streaming projections
“Vivarium: A Place of Life” is an installation that studies the interactions within an ecosystem, from the movement of matter and energy, to the community created by the living and nonliving organisms. This network of interactions is captured in the macroscopic and microscopic level over time through live projections, as an attempt to scale what it means to be part of a larger ecosystem: the Earth.
Playing with silica | 2015
New materials are fascinating. Developing materials with new physical and chemical properties help to address challenges in the industry. Fumed silica is a material widely used in the food, paints and cosmetic industries as viscosity increaser. This powder has an extremely low bulk density and high surface area.
The inspiration for this work was a 10 Kg big package of fumed silica found in my lab. I did not have another option than to experiment and obtain interesting shapes, patterns, and textures.
