I worked designing physical interactive installations [Invaders, 2008] that attracted people to congregate in a specific moment and place, to collectively experiment with new ways to relate to each other [Simon, 2013], looking for experiences that encourage people to create meaningful connections [business cards].
From design, I gradually moved into artistic practice. I built robots to exhibit our ease to assimilate new gestures and rapidly automate them [#artificialselfie, 2016], on purpose [Something is wrong, 2017] or without being completely aware of it [Sleep disorder, 2016]. I even surrendered control of my own gestures to others in order to stage the power of digital devices as behavioral design tools [Follow, 2018].
Something is wrong, 2017
September 20, 2017. Spanish police stormed Catalan government buildings in an attempt to stop the independence referendum [wiki].
At 10:00 pm, a cacerolada [wiki], a form of popular protest which consists of a group of people making noise by banging pots, pans, and other utensils in order to call for attention, started in multiple municipalities across Catalunya.
The cacerolada repeated every day at the same hour to support the referendum that took place on October 1.
