Create elements and processes aiming at contributing to human development in harmony with other species and the planet. My work consists in making experimental models to test possible functional, aesthetic and theoretical scenarios. Each new project has its own visual and conceptual language. 

Past investigations on language and memory have resulted in works that reflect on the passage of time and energy. Identity and politics have been recurrent themes in my work, both autonomously and in collaboration with other artists. Found/given everyday, recycled objects are a significant portion of my physical creations.

I studied arts both in Rio de Janeiro and New York. I also have degrees in urban planning (Ph.D., Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro), social policy and planning (M.Sc., London School of Economics) and administration (B.Sc., Universidade do Estado de Santa Catarina, Florianópolis).
