Through my personal projects and collaborations I explore communication through playful narratives. I work with words, graphics, moving image, physical structures and digital interactions to enable direct forms of engagement with our physical and digital spaces.

Sandy Island was a territory between Australia and New Caledonia discovered by Captain Cook in the 18th Centruy. Or so was believed until 2012, when scientists surveyed the area and realised such island had never existed.

This cartographic mistake, also reflected in contemporary charts such as Google Maps, highlights the potential of mathematical data to generate fictions, often taken as accurate representations of reality.

For a group exhibition at the Royal College of Art, I presented different versions of the non-existent island, mapping its topography to daily fluctuations of the currency market. Speculative visualisations and mapmaking tools bring Sandy Island back to the map in order to reflect on the fictional nature of our financial system, and the role of data in such fabrications.

Data Worship is a satirical take on the current glorification of quantitative data analysis, too often misunderstood as an unbiased representation of reality.

This video installation presents the worshipping tools and rituals of a fictional cult devoted to reading the tempers of the global currency market. Drawing from the language of candlestick financial charts, the cult’s system of symbols embodies the combination of mathematical thinking and highly interpretative practices.

This interactive installation visualises levels of noise through human bodily expressions, creating a simple yet playful dialogue between digital and physical spaces.

Dialogues of Noise was exhibited in Limerick (Ireland) in 2009 as part of Tweak Festival, where I also delivered a talk about the ideas and proccesses behind.

A collaboration with designer Sam P. Nguyen, this football-inspired game introduced the concept of gravitational fields to children and families in the Science Festival at the National Football Museum of Manchester in 2015.

Visitors were invited to place a series of iron spheres on an elastic surface to visualise the gravitational force of different planets in our Solar System. By observing how each sphere’s mass influences the game, players engaged on a first-hand experience of gravitational phenomena.
