In my work, I like to explore borders, convergences, links, and superpositions that communicate different realities. I think that the mystery of the everyday life resides in this space in-between, in those unstable spaces where certainty doesn’t exist and everything can stop being itself to become the other.
The attempt to understand these convergences and borders is at the core of my work. I´m particularly interested in the intersection between memory and imagination and between history and story. But I´m also interested in the artificial borders and limits we create to separate realities, like for example between human and nature or between human and technologies.
This obsession for the in-between is also part of my methodology of work, where I like to explore the boundaries between film and digital media.“When Diaghilev began again producing Russian ballets, some critics complained that Petrushka’s decorations had lost the startling polychromy they originally possessed: yet they were the same ones, perfectly conserved.Diaghilev saw himself forced into heightening the tones to put them on par with the spectacular memory that remained of these.” Around the Day in Eighty Worlds. Julio Cortázar.
I’m interested in lies and their conscious and unconscious mechanisms to transform truth; the daily lie that lives within each of us as a mode of survival or as a reflexive act, a natural and spontaneous lie. I’m interested in the creative lie that enables biographies to become artistic manifestations; the lie that permits the spectacular memory of the sets of Petrushka and the lie that rewrites history books. I’m interested in lies, in all their variety…
Subjectivity (this one looks so real, doesn´t it?)
Postproduction is a way of lying. Perhaps that is why it interests me so much, not only as a means to an end but also as an end in itself, as an artistic expression. A postproduction that is capable of creating multiple layers, new meanings and original perspectives of the research material. I’m interested in everything related to postproduction, the processes that can manipulate, sample and forge, and their translation into an artistic and cinematographic language.

I´m particularly interested in the intersection bewteen memory and imagination, History and story, in that particular moment where fiction sleep into reality and became itself into truth.
But I´m also interested in the artificial borders and limits we create to separate realities, like for example between human and nature or between human and technologies.
The attempt to understand these convergences and borders, is as the core of my work. This obsession for the in-between is also mirror in my methodology of work where I explore the boundaries between film and digital media.

Postproduction has an important role in my work, not only as a means to an end but also as an end in itself, as an artistic expression. I´m interested in a postproduction that is capable of creating multiple layers, new meanings and original perspectives of the research material.
I’m interested in all the processes that can manipulate reality to bringback its original power ,as if it were the first time we encountered it, and their translation into an artistic and cinematographic language.
