 ENTROPY  Photographic investigation of abandoned spaces hidden in the center of Lisbon and awaiting demolition. An orderly documentation of disorder balanced by any system and contained in the inherited spaces of identity.   These spaces don't exist anymore.

 MOVING OUT  Ephemeral sculpture made of ice with trapped pieces of furniture. Based on a deambulant reality of common migration between spaces, moving out becomes the metaphorical action of gradually releasing the pieces of disintegration of the house shape. When we move out somewhere new, we often think about the new place we are heading but not so much about what was left behind.

 CAMERALESS (AMERICA)  Images developed within a mix of analogue photographic techniques. They entail objects which overlap and create barriers to the light, consequently altering the original reality. Memories of iconic spaces and situations are deliberately shifting to correspond to a degradation of their inherited identities.
