1. CRYSTALLIZED is an immersive sculpture made of steel, sounds and holographic visuals. Inspired by the chemical element of Bismuth and built from the physics laws of light, CRYSTALLIZED is a mysterious structure constantly changing its appearance from atom to liquid to crystal. People can appreciate the infinite and mesmerizing light effects of the art piece from the different points of views.

  3. Matter is “all that which occupies space”: droplets of water or specks of dust are types of matter, just as plants, animals and the planets themselves are. Matter is made up of certain types of particles. These particles may come together in different ways to create complex, ever-changing structures. Matter dies continuously, for it is constantly evolving into something else. The human being is no exception in this sense, and ‘Fragments of Human Experience’ takes shape thinking of every tiny fragment of our lives, of all our experiences that have intertwined with those of others, thus giving rise to a common and unique experience.

    The visual design part was produced with Proce55ing so as to allow the audio to react in real time, providing close interaction with the soundtrack. The stills and videos that appear in the sequence were shot during a number of journeys to Iceland, India, Japan, Bolivia, Peru, China, Laos and Vietnam.

  4. Ljós is the translation of the latent elements of dreams into visible contents.
The body is the medium through which the connections between light, sound and movement are explored, leading the spectator into an unreal space, rarefied and disorientating.
    Live Media Performance based on the real-time interaction between the movements of the body, sound and the projection of generative graphic features.

  5. Breakdown is an interactive audiovisual dance performance presented at the Ears Eyes and Feet event in the B. Iden Payne Theater, May 2014, UT Austin Texas.

    Breakdown explores a 2 dimensional simulated world in which its physical rules are constantly being changed and manipulated by an external entity. An inhabitant of this world is in constant motion to adapt to its characteristics. He interacts with the physical rules and develops a dialogue with the entity who controls the forces. Eventually the inhabitant ends up breaking the world's rules and release himself into a new world, a new dimension.

    The dancers’s movements and gestures are captured by two Kinect cameras on stage, creating an interactive dialog with the music and visuals.
