01            OUT OF MEMORY 

Out of memory is a critical / discursive project developed with the aim of questioning the object-user relationship through the outsourcing of memory. A critical look at our capabilities and the alternative pillars to which we surrender in the hope of resolving our shortcomings as humans.



02            HET LAM GODS

Het Lam Gods as Belgian heritage and iconic image at the same time. The book features a double-reading collection; from the general to the particular, and vice versa, from the icon to the original. The only thing the polyptych shares with all its reproductions and souvenirs is the exhibition value. The more widespread, the better. Reprinting the 334 images responds to perpetuate this will.



03            CHILLIDA 

Graphic poster designed from the text “Eduardo Chillida, el escultor de la Real Sociedad” by Javier Ancín Salinas. A personal interpretation critical of fanaticism and in favor of the affected.



04           RESIDENTE

Identity for the musical project of René Perez called “Residente”.
Concept of an ongoing identity based on the migrations happeninng during the project and tour.



05            AFFORDANCE 

Affordance, about the book, is a college project thats aims to question the conception of what is meant by book. A book that speaks of the book as such, not through the written narrative, but through the object itself, its uses and its physical functions that we found as we use it in our daily basis.



06            METAMORPHICTION 

Personal project about the conceptualitzation and production of merchandising for a fictional music band called FauxQueue (the word with most silent leters in the english dictionary; reference to my null knowledge about music production). A project focused on process experimentation, driven by envy.



07            ANEXO MAGAZINE

Anexo is a college editorial design project that seeks to experiment with the composition and structure of graphic elements to highlight the theme of the publication.



08            IMAGERY ARCHIVE

Computer-generated imagery made for fun. With no purpose other than experimentation.
