Working in photography, video and installation, I have found my inspiration in a
personal obsession for the order, the trace and the object. Playful and inventive, my
ideas may stem from a desire to mold a particular material or object – from hand
dryers or dead leaves to bricks – with which I explore my relation with the World. The
creative body of work is about staging and documenting absurd transitory and
ephemeral situations for the camera. The intention is to appeal to open answers and
questions from the audience, not only for the situations in front of the camera, but also
for the ideas behind the camera.

Energy Trace circles is part of the vocabulary of on the ongoing project that is a
philosophical essay on human condition.  Global challenges have reappear in a cyclical
way, it seems that we are immersed in a vicious circle, in which nothing have changed
in its roots.  The context presents itself as a puzzle, in which my intention is to try to
find not only an active and participative exit, but also a new negotiation option.
Perhaps if we want a new negotiation option, we need to find something that will
remove us from our immediate life not only in a simple and ordinary approach, but
also in a poetic way.  Perhaps if we create honest transactions in a value free way
through our voice between the objects, the audience, and us, we will continue
unfolding primary existential questions.
