My research interests focus on the representation and understanding of the cognitive processes that form the background of our sensory perceptions. To achieve this, I use artistic practice as a tool that brings us closer to our deepest experiences and behaviours. These include:

· Our collective imagination, cultural heritage, and subjective perception.


· The understanding of the structuring and processing of perception at an emotional and symbolic level.


· The conscious and subconscious processes during the mental representation of abstract or concrete ideas, and the creation of aesthetic experiences.
