My work is a reflection about contemporary aesthetic patterns. I’m interested in producing objects or images, which represent the perception of contemporary urban spaces and their rituals. Beyond a specific remark on the body, my approach explores the emotional state of persons or social groups and its context, and simultaneously proposes research on materials and techniques. At the moment I am developing a project of urban interventions where the experiences of the people with whom I work become the detonators of the artwork. I believe the circumstance, the process, and the documentation are the most important tools for dialogue.

I conceive emotion like a category of the aesthetics, and art like an instrument of emotional communication.
