Porfolio Summary

I am a software engineer, creative technologist, artist and educator with passion for complexity, networked systems, dance, contemplative practices, and social innovation. I danced profesionaly for more than 30 years and started to use computers in my creative work since late 90s. As an interdiciplinary artist, I had the freedom of investigating embodied cognition, movement improvisation, awareness practices, interactive multimedia systems, human-computer interaction, aesthetic coding, netwoked sociotechnical systems/bottom-up architectures for creative processes, knowledge transmission and care.

I have been interested in creating platforms with a p2p architecture and establishing collaborations. I am fascinated by the possibilities of P2P technologies and the blockchain for artictic practices and its implications for governance, ownership, the commons and social change. I am the creator of dance-tech.net and MotionDAO..

I have always been driven by curiosity and my capacity to see the whole and its parts always from an embodied perspective. I have learned to move fast and efficiently from large scale problems, such as networks to the specificities of software implementation. I have lots of collaborative experience envisioning, engineering, coordinating and passion for deploying cutting edge international projects intersecting software, art, culture and people.

Currently, I am focused on the posibilities of JS and the modern JS libraries and exploring their potential for spatial computing, machine learning and immersive and mixed reality applications.

RESEARCH, TEACHING and WRITING

UnstableLandscape | Generativity and the Embodiments of Complexity

Screen Shot 2022-02-25 at 8 18 34 PM

Images froman Unstblelandscape Workshop and Performance/Installation at Connecticut College (2020)

As an interdisciplinary artist and researcher I have been fascinated by complexity theory and self-organizing systems, working for many years in the intersection of imporvisationa and rule based dance/arts, computational creativity, bottom-up architectures for cohnition and embodiment, generative design and p2p/blockchain technologies.

I teach and consult for universities, arts centers, corporations, festivals and thinktanks.

Unstablelandscape is my post-humanist epistemic integrative framework for shared practices (Briadoti, Haraway…), fields of inquiry, facilitation toolbox and pedagogy.

I use improvisational/performance games, creative coding, XR/AR/Machine Learning, robotics, somatics, vipassana meditation and generative design.

I lead workshops and labs in North, Central and South America, North Africa, Middle East, Europe and the UK.
