I see architecture as part of a complex system in which organic and non-organic matter continuously interact and influence each other. Starting from close observations of my surroundings, I use experimental methods to create new subjects that challenge obsolete conventions from the anthropocentric tradition.

Lately I have been fascinated by the behavior of plants and the way they explore space with their senses. The focus of my research has shifted in particular towards the creation of experimental apparatuses that, by moving in reaction to external signals, act and react to the constantly changing environment.
