artist statement
I’m an interdisciplinary artist from the peninsula of Yucatan, Mexico whose practice explores the contemporary use of language, the ambiguity of translations, the space in memories, and the aesthetics of miscommunication. I use new media, interactivity, and expanded cinema to create immersive sound and expanded image experiences that generate platforms for participatory storytelling. 
My research-based practice relies on scientific papers, internet tutorials, and collaboration to compose new forms of communication and engagement. New media allows me to work in the constant unknown. Immigrant state: decode, simulate, adapt! a never-ending resolution in the relationship of identity and space.
My recent work investigates an evolution and decay in language, simulations of identity, and media translations. To access universal points of view, I use free-form, spontaneous landscapes, and characters that access other's gazes. I orient the viewer into a quest for meaning in foreign environments. Understanding our mediated-selves, achieving open and free communication.

bodiless migration 20 [[in hyperspacetime]] is a direct response to my engagement in our current reality. An avatar allows me to engage in a Frankensteinesque or stepped-made world. Using computer animation software, machine learning animations, undersea footage, Zoom screen captures, drawings, and chroma key compositions, I composed a new blue world full of simulation. Let's imagine and build newer physical and conceptual bodies, empathies, and borderless stories.

These are my working ideas,  an ever changing writing space.
This is why I do art/how I do art. 
I’m an interdisciplinary artist and I’m in a never-ending quest of mastering techniques through collaborative opportunities. I gained my video skills when I was a teenager. With YouTubers as teachers, forum posts, and blogs on the internet. Today, new media is just a continuation of my DIY and alternative learning experiences. In new media, I find and equal language barrier, I gain access to privileged spaces and media control. In new media I find power, and once I achieve that power, I can redistribute, share and brake barriers.
Curiosity is key when one has to dive into new fields of knowledge, fearless, and naive drive to learn something new. In science journals, papers, and research I get inspiration to tell/express untold stories in unknown spaces. I enjoy expressing myself in ways that I haven’t heard or seen before. I reject the homage and I embrace the surprise.
In the unexpected, we can move previous static states of mind. In the unexpected, we can draw our imagination to places that were not accessible before. In this search for unexpected, I’ve been researching live streaming as a form of art. Live streaming is a fleeting digital performance that combines television, theater, and film practices with internet platforms and physical venues. Generate moments and happenings of synchronicity and displacement for captive audiences. This has been my latest passion, live-streaming is media immediacy.

Today I believe our desire for the “authentic," allows live-stream media to pause our state of disbelief and allows our natural truth bias to capture our attention.

 Our interaction with the now creates an intimate relationship between the masses and individuals, thus telepresence allows us to be far from each other, it is also capable of bringing us closer than ever before. Our output of constant data streaming and live consumption, allows us to be situated in many places at the same time, accelerating our perception of time. This immediacy allows the sender and recipient to be present simultaneously in a third place, the image projected on the other end.
In the search for engagement, I use interactivity to invite the viewer to be part of the exhibition/experience. The engagement can disarm the audience—I use that moment to inject ideas, metaphors and different perspectives into the mental spectrum of the audience and participants of my exhibitions. Engagement as a tool to highlight form, life, and perspective. In engagement I find moments of reflection, inner sight, future visions and active retrospective. 
Culture Change
Curiosity sparks many ideas and prompts me to listen and search for knowledge, which has lead me to embrace interdisciplinary skills. My previous experience and my years in Campeche, allow me to acknowledge the power in oneself and more importantly the collective power. Whether I’m collaborating or learning from someone, this power has allowed me to deal with the unexpected. And in the unexpected, I find the motivation to move forward in research and expression. To defy the status quo, to share knowledge, to embrace collective learning, to understand each other as one. I believe I do art, to facilitate perspectives, mediate communication between others, and express my feelings and ideas. I aspire to be a culture-changing agent that shares knowledge, expresses unheard voices, and shapes our culture.
