Their efforts are aimed at trying to give value to “things”, working with materials, products and creating new objects, transforming the matter or not.

He is interested in the confrontation of objects, work processes and the development of a product. That is what this artist finds most interesting, since it gives rise to approaches where two or more discourses have a place and scenarios where the object can have its space, its role. This differentiation that the object can develop depending on the scenario where it lives, raises opinions, ways of thinking and understanding, that are attractive and suggestive.

It leans toward dialogue and contradictions conveyed by the same object, its positioning in different possible scenarios and environments, and its development. According to the artist, a product that does not emit dialogue on stage is not always a dead product or one lacking life and meaning.

Analyzes object and social classism. The contextualization and decontextualization of objects:

-A bland, static and invisible object, which does not generate curiosity and bores, can arouse individual or social interest within another container that apparently gives it value, content and/or context. This same product ends up acquiring value and notoriety, would this scenario then be changing the value of the object or is it simply observed by easily influenced characters? If in a neutral scenario, a product appears as a naked object at first glance, lacking in insinuation and nothing suggestive, does it leave room for imagination, logic, function, utility and creativity or not?
