A new series of kinetic art installations that incorporate biological data, weaving patterns, and quadcopter drones.

The project takes real data related to biological species (food web relationships, migratory patterns, extinction statistics, etc) and turns it into woven sculptures. Different size drones, each carrying a spool of thread, are programmed to follow different paths, as biological species do, weaving their trajectories into structures reminiscent of both microscopic and cosmic architecture. Abstracted numbers and relationships become audible, visible and tangible through a playful choreography that is both organic and mechanical. The selected site (Silo City in Buffalo, NY) offers a perfect context, allowing the project to make links between history, architecture, urbanism, ecology and technology.

A collection of sculptures inspired by the underground mineral caves located in Chihuahua, Mexico (northern highlands).

Continuing my explorations started at the Crafting the Future workshop (Dutch Electronic Arts Festival) in Rotterdam, I am currently designing a series of new works, ranging from jewelry/wearable sculptures, to interactive sculptures and installations using polymers and fibres. I am interested in conveying the high density and weighted volume of the caves with unconventional, lightweight materials.

A COLLECTION OF INK DRAWINGS, WIRE SCULPTURES AND MIX-MEDIA INSTALLATIONS PORTRAYING THE BATHYMETRY OF LAKE ERIE.

Lake Erie, part of the Great Lakes in the Northeastern United States, is one of the most important water sources in North America, yet little is known by the general population in terms of its unique shape, qualities, benefits and ecological issues. This series delves into the topic through several media, to emphasise the importance of natural resource management at the local level.
