Idea of my work

Images, objects and places acquire their own identity by decontextualizing them, perceiving them not only by their shape or location, but for the essence contained by themselves. I use images of objects and spaces as a trigger for our memories. Our lives are shaped by images and objects that we keep and collect, creating our own identity.

I make a video that contains some of these images of objects and spaces. Can be show in a display or projected on a screen.
