,theworkout.ch 2020, collaboration with jeanne tullen : we imagine the workout of the future. machines feel more human than gym instructors, and laptops are an essential tool
to workout. theworkout.ch explores the potential of online tutorials as triggers for physical interactivity and
performability. presented as a website offering an interactive workout tutorial, theworkout.ch is in fact an experiment,
developing innovative ways of physically engaging with digital mediums (with support from pro helvetia and swiss cultural fund uk)
,ocho presagios 2020, website, with introduction by chloë reid :
the eight omens are a series of happenings that the mexicas—the rulers of the aztec empire—affirmed seeing that where
marking the return of the god quetzalcoatl and the end of the fifth cycle of birth, death and reincarnation. the eight
omens coincidentaly matched with the spanish arrival and conquest.
through this website the omens are told, but when presented to an outsider audience a word from the narrative gets
removed. gifting it to the viewer as a unique object to collect, while simultaneously fracturing the past until it fully
,see-also.net 2020 website, narrative (sept 20) :
is the future of the internet the future of the world?
how can we go beyond the ubiquitous net and beyond capitalism realism? a whole history of the internet is waiting to be
told, not based on globalisation, but on political blockage; on when the internet ceases to exist.
see-also.net mimics a network of information with my latest online stumbles as an attempt to access the paranodal
space—the space in between the network nodes—through random hyperlinks working as cut-ups, every click leaks between
the cracks and expands the hyperstitional narrative. an experiment to speculate and dream about future scenarios outside
the eurocentric western reality. a time travel machine that leaks out the future by cutting up the present.
,draughtsman drawing irl 2019, video : i watch google as google watches me. a play on gaze and perspective on the multi-layered reality of today through a
series of networked livestream cameras and google's tracking policies. albrecht dürer’s draughtsman drawing a recumbent
woman (c. 1600) is used to illustrate the representational failure of perspective. while the draughtsman is effectively
blind — his gaze is lost in the paper, losing sight of the figure — the woman can seductively and unceasingly observe
,next to you (in-malibu.mx) 2019, website,video : to be territorial is to assert a relationship between ourselves and a place. these bonds fortify a sense of meaning and
identity. for many years, california has represented a cultural and geographical centre: the birthplace of “cool”, a
place of endless sun, beaches, and possibilities. a mythical image of the promised land, the ideal lifestyle. it is also
the last place i
visited before being deported and banned from the us in 2017. “next to you (in-malibu.mx)” is a longing for a place that
i can’t physically access. a question on the meaning of a physical barrier in times of hyper-globalisation,

,oh! pina 2019, website : both a website and an installation. it references the colonial history behind the pineapple trade and looks at the
pineapple as one of the earliest
links between scotland and latin america; tracing the journey of the pineapple from being considered a symbol of
privilege and wealth between scottish royalty to becoming the widely available fruit that it is today.
the website represents an internet worm whole on this journey, while the installation, consisting of nineteen pineapples
cut to read the website's url, represents it actual stage as a widely available fruit,
,haunting never touching 2019 : a collaborative installation (system) with reouth keren, consisting of her video essay on the significance of "the
event" through cctv footage and
two websites connected to ip surveillance cameras located in the space, which bounce around, distort and sends the video
back to the net, where it belongs. visitors encountered themselves in a playful state of surveillance,
we realise, that as long as the old doesn’t makespace, the new cannot be born.
both websites are still online, as empty vessels of what once was.
,witty linked verse 2018 : an installation consisting of up to 24 haiku poems, reinterpreted as urls by using the first website appearing on a
google search of each verse. through this action, a system of multiple translations is constructed. from japanese to
english, to digital, to physical. the essence and structure of this poems is lost and all that’s left are symbols.
symbols which can be traced back to their digital existence but no further, as their meaning is completely distorted,
