In my recent work, I have developed a method of research which proposes various possibilities of perception and interaction between space, time, landscape, sound and memory. These concepts serve as a flexible base where they articulate different projects that allow me to explore diverse processes and means of representation. I want to make visible these interests in the outcome of the work and gradually adjust, the various creative links. This generates dynamical collaborations.
