I think of my work as a navigational device that allows me to make objects and installations that appear as if they have always belonged together. I make things that have their own visual logic.
Many of my pieces are synergies of materials or processes. I use an additive form of construction to find different ways to push, weave, connect, or fasten materials. I am interested in working with materials that we considered to be obsolete. I use old technologies, like audio or videocassettes, that at one point where very important to the recording of our micro and macro history of our lives.
There are three central ideas to my work. One is containment. I want to create work that responds to the action of keeping something under control or within limits. The second is making art that questions the speed in which we produce, consume and discard everything around us. The third centers on my interest to explore the non-visual aspects of language.
Born in México City, México, lives and works in Playa del Carmen and Bethesda, Maryland.
