01            OUT OF MEMORY           

Out of memory és un projecte crític/discursiu realitzat amb l’objectiu de posar en qüestió la relació objecte-usuari a través de l’externalització del record. Una mirada crítica de les nostres capacitats i dels pilars alternatius als que ens entreguem amb l'esperança de solucionar els nostres defectes com a humans




06            HET LAM GODS

Het Lam Gods com a patrimoni Belga i imatge icònica alhora. El llibre presenta un recull de doble lectura; del general al concret, i al revés, de la icona a l'original. L'única cosa que comparteix el políptic amb totes les seves reproduccions i souvenirs és el valor d'exhibició. Com més difós sigui, millor. Tornar a imprimir les 334 imatges respon a perpetuar aquesta voluntat.

(EN) 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.


✨️Book available at 1MACBA store Laie, 2CCCB Laie, 3La Central✨️




03            CHILLIDA 

Poster gràfic dissenyat a partir del text “Eduardo Chillida, el escultor de la Real Sociedad” de Javier Ancín Salinas.
Una interpretació personal crítica al fanatisme i en favor de la cursileria.



04            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.



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.

07            REDEFINING CHRISTIANITY 

Redefining Christianity is an experience carried out in a small hermitage in order to reflect on the relationship of the believer with God and ecclesiastical rituals. We built an interactive experience that guided the devotee to the origin of light, God. The use of technology to carry out the experience is a metaphor for how new religious experiences are born from new technologies and social media.
