November in Marseille, starlings gather on a crane before their big departure to Africa.
The photographic trace, lost with the film, is here reinvented to show the flight of birds under a new aspect.
Will their freedom of movement forever remain a distant dream for humanity?


These series is called* Reconquista* as I view the temples scattered all over Lima as a glitch on what it would otherwise be a uniform third world imitation of first world architecture: these should have disappeared in colonial times (many did) but others were just forgotten, being buried underground but this erasing of memory was what actually saved them.

Study for a cosmic city

“Study for a cosmic city” is an audiovisual work inspired by a utopian urban proposal exposed by the composer and architect Iannis Xenakis in an essay entitled “La Ville Cosmique” (1965).

Models for Environmental Literacy

In the face of climate change, large-scale computer-controlled systems are being deployed to understand terrestrial systems. Artificial intelligence is used on a planetary scale to detect, analyze and manage landscapes. In the West, there is a great belief in ‘intelligent’ technology as a lifesaver. However, practice shows that the dominant AI systems lack the fundamental insights to act in an inclusive manner towards the complexity of ecological, social, and environmental issues.


Do robots dream of virtual puppies? Nintendogs is a gameboy game about training dogs. In addition, simulated leisure time with the virtual animals is an important part of the game. In the installation the game is “played” by a robot who the whole console to stroke the dog. The installation asks: Will artificial empathy ever play a role? Does a virtual dog notice that he is being stroked by a robot? And can a virtual dog develop sympathies for this robot?

Theodore – A Sentimental Writing Machine

Theodore is an interactive installation capable to write sentimental letters
based only on image content. The main idea underlying this project is to find out if machines are able to understand feelings, context, and generate intimate and confidential letters that express human-like sentiments using only pictures as input.

Speech 2

Speech 2 is an experimental audiovisual piece created from a series of old clips from the US broadcast public affairs interview program The Open Mind. This piece is reflection on the action of communicating, highlighting its limitations, and can be labelled as “text-sound-art” in an audio-visual framework.

Suspicious behavior – a data annotation tutorial

Machine vision technologies, such as object recognition, facial recognition and emotion detection, are increasingly used to turn images into information, filter it and make predictions and inferences. In the past years these technologies have made rapid advances in accuracy.

Momimsafe – A spin on surveillance technology to explore human empathy

This is a presentation proposal to introduce the artistic and technical inspiration behind Momimsafe (; a project that was my response to the covid-19 lockdown in Chicago. This work is a disarmingly simple use of technology to passively link distant spaces during a time of isolation and unpredictability. Along with a telepresence element, Momimsafe led to a number of satellite projects that emerged from it.
