“My work is centred on the study of the individual’s psychological subjective framework , which is given by a myriad of factors such as experience, states of mind, memory… Among these factors, I focus especially on the
altered states of consciousness and on the space from an anthropological perspective. I am interested in
to investigate the link between the manipulated landscape and savage nature, and how these juxtapositions
affect our way of conceiving the world. Also, through video, I also want to delve into these confrontations beyond the screen, where we come face to face with a form of virtual reality that creeps into our daily lives and represents a completely new unknown landscape.”
