Director Statement

"With my visual art work I invite to the viewer into a contemplative state through photography and video. I relate to my surroundings with a border perception in which I build reflections with the emotional changes of my experience as an immigrant and my interaction between my body and my mind with imperceptible elements that live in the natural landscape. I produce and I appropriate of images and sounds that I manipulate by a computer to create poetic narratives.
