self-portrait of the commons
self-portrait of the commons is the construction of a space that might be used as a place of reflection for the spectator: it strives to be a starting point for a reconnection with the environment. It aims to erase the anthropocentric division between human-environment, shaping instead harmony and continuity: the individual as part of everything.
The visualization of this space started in a text written as a way of visualizing, imagining, understanding and interiorizing the concept of the commons based off research around the topic.
The place’s aesthetic is kaleidscopic: it presents reflections, aspects, shards of one entity.

Sociedad Para Archivar Mail (SPAM)
Since 2018 I've been collecting spam; when I receive an email of this kind, I take screenshots of it and store them in a folder.
In March 2021, I started a spam archive on Tumblr and Instagram with the aim to make my collection public, as well as collaborative: anyone can send screenshots of their spam to add it to the collection.
