I am a communication designer and interdisciplinary artist working at the intersection of technology, design and philosophy. In my recent production I analyse and alter present digital ecosystems to set aesthetic and critical narratives that occur between reality and fiction. After years of questioning current visual cultures and their social impact, I am developing my own artistic practice to understand the politics of the contemporary digital image.

‘H.A.N.D.’ is the acronym of 'have a nice day', idea that came through the classic NYC groceries plastic bag. It's something present in our life regularly, that is useful and handy, but somehow not relevant. It's just there, semi-transparent, cheap and polluting, with a great message for you to take, or ignore.





It has been published as a self edited zine in London and Barcelona. Some of the pictures are viral on Tumblr (1, 2, 3), and ‘My Banana' has been exhibited at Rox Gallery in New York City.
