Recurrent First Dream
Recurrent First Dream
2022
“Recurrent First Dream” is a chandelier made of 45 suspended flat-screens arranged as a 3D spiral paraboloid. An ascending vortex of words routinely appears and scans the displays, slowly revealing Mexican poet Juana Inés de la Cruz’s magnum opus “First Dream,” a pioneering feminist ode to knowledge and deductive reasoning, written in 1692.

Text Stream 7, 2019
“Recurrent Llull” (Text Stream 7) is a recursive algorithmic animation made with the collected works of Mediterranean philosopher and polymath Ramon Llull, born in the kingdom of Majorca in 1232. Among Llull’s accomplishments was the very first symbolic machine, a series of concentric circles that could be operated to generate combinations of “elemental truths”.

Descending a Parametric Staircase
Descending a Parametric Staircase
2018
This piece is a generative animation showing a descent into a never-ending spiral staircase. From time to time, uncanny virtual naked people can be seen walking down the staircase. The work never repeats the same sequence of characters. “Descending a Parametric Staircase” is a homage to Duchamp’s futurist composite “Nude Descending a Staircase” from 1912, taking its colour palette, and his “Rotoreliefs” from 1935.

Recurrent Sanches
Text Stream 3, 2018
“Recurrent Sanches” (Text Stream 3) is a new algorithmic text spring made with the works of Spanish-Portuguese philosopher and physician Francisco Sanches, most notably his sceptical treatise “That nothing can be known” Quod nihil scitur (1581) in which he proposes that nothing can be known through its causes, since it would also be necessary to know the causes of the causes, and then their causes, in an infinite regress.

2004
"Inspired by Real Events" is a series of six black and white photos taken from the point of view of surveillance cameras in different public places of Mexico City. Each photo shows a volunteer climbing a ladder about to reach the camera with his or her hand. A video on a surveillance monitor shows the sequences captured by the cameras.

1000 Platitudes
1000 Platitudes
2003
"1000 Platitudes" is a large-scale photographic intervention project. It is comprised of photomontages and a video with 1,000 words or expressions commonly used to promote globalized cities to potential investors, such as "open", "modern", "clean", "multicultural" and "cosmopolitan". To make these images, a powerful projector (110,000 ANSI lumens of intensity for images of up to 70 by 70 metres) was placed on a 12-ton truck with a generator, then toured across the city of Linz, Austria.

Amodal Suspension
Relational Architecture 8, 2003
“Amodal Suspension" (Relational Architecture 8) is a large-scale interactive installation in which people send short text messages to each other using a cell phone or web browser. However, rather than being sent directly, the messages are encoded as unique sequences of flashes with twenty robotically-controlled searchlights, not unlike the patterns that make up Morse code. Messages "bounce" around from searchlight to searchlight, turning the sky into a giant switchboard.
