Reinterpreted spaces unwrapped by fiction to discover
Statement & Background
Unfinished inventories, fragments, objects, sketches and paintings... photographs and other spontaneous inventions are the concepts that come to my mind when I think about my work. Each and every one of them gives way to improvisation, where building, hybridization and technology will provoke an acknowledgement or will entice the observer to an adventure into the unknown. Schematic pieces cause the onlooker to move within a space of speculation where by being aware of an idea he can interweave his own geographies, routes, and paths to known or imaginary worlds. Markings, scars, scratches and logs unfold before the spectator, made by man or not. Maps that are witnesses of desired or undesired events happen and evolve in an environment that is regenerated at its own will. I reinterpret cartographic thoroughness imagining spaces unwrapped by fiction to discover, create or reveal geographies that lead us to exact existences.
