There is a temptation of creating our own little world in the places where we interact. From this interaction we develop a relation to that space. There are moments where the relation of the space is intense, forced and private. This is a time that we can be The Little Prince (Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's most famous children novel published 1943), we can live or belong to one little world. Our activities can manipulate our attachment to different places. The piece Private Space explores the boundaries of our human relation to space and what we do in these spaces.

My performantive pieces evoke situations and emotions in everyday life. They work as emotional prosthetics that have a self-reflective feature: Feeling vulnerable in a new environment and trying to adapt to it, this situation creates fear and comical circumstances that I fix with pieces that “supply” or satisfy a need.
I explore the concept of functionality as a material and media to create ambiguity between art, design, performance and sculpture. In addiction I use other materials like fibers, electronics and found objects that combine with traditional art techniques such as drawing, sewing, photograph and video. Through my work I create ironic links between communication and sound, feminine and identity, protection and adaptation as human condition.
