Statement

My research lives in transition, exploring the concept of limits within social dynamics. In this sense, the lines that draw the traits of the society are the limits that determine what is the Other in respect to it; and it is precisely on these lines of configuration/exclusion, on the boundaries of a culture - and not inside it - where it defines itself. Part of what it means to be a Self is to accept a never ending process of creation/dissolution of identity.
