Statement
I use the video medium to observe and put into perspective the reality that surrounds me. I look for situations that break with the ordinary. The world is a great paradox that resounds in the human being, in turn, perplexed. Precise moments taken in video, enhance the idea of duality and testify the contradiction of existence. I am a landscape artist, I am interested in sublime scenarios and stop the time until the detail becomes significant. Traveling sharpens my senses, puts me on alert and forces me to be in a deep state of observation. 3 axes are central to my work: the human condition as time passes; the altered perception of reality and the sensory immersion that sharpens our senses. Both in my installations and videos I let the viewer take the narrative part and be carried by streams of images and sounds.
