Statement

My recent works are created from studying the essence of cinema elsewhere, outside of the form that is traditionally defined, investigating concepts of Interior Cinema and topographies of imagination. The study called When the Spell is Broken, founded in 2014, is developed from my interest in systems of communication, mediation and translation processes within ontologies of the cinematic space. I have developed a conceptual and methodological framework that interweaves technology, cinema, and animist practices; a study on the notion of anachronism and its entanglements to light and sound; ontology and hauntology, spirit and spectre.

Interior Cinema is designed as a type of shelter; a speculative device, a womb-like-cave machine from where to go back to the feminine energy of origins. Interior Cinema is conceived as a hybrid space that allows for an interdisciplinary connectivity, where suspension of cinematic states is entered from kinetic rhythms and topological dynamics.  This experience involves embodied cognition in the realm of the arts. The technological space (device) facilitates a full body and senses experience immersion through cinematic processes of integration and navigation.This approach is rooted in emancipatory views through spatial knowledge: physical, imagined and psychoacoustic spaces.

I am the co-founder of Invisibledrum, Artist’s association investigating the correlation between the technology of shamanism;  interconnectedness and intra-action of reception and transmission phenomena through animistic system.
