LAGU (live) / nov 2021 / installation
A weather-controlled generative audio-visual system. Developed during a residency at Tabakalera within Summer Sessions 2021 program.

LAGU / mar 2021 / javascript + sound
Generative audio system controlled by the weather. See the code here . I also gave a short talk about it at nanoGUNE's PhD workshop 2021.

choices_irl / oct 2017 / video + sound
A story about the aftermath of a decision. Each phase of the process is represented by abstract figures that convey different moods. The individual shapes are geometrically unaltered, but suffer transformations and rotations to repeatedly reach new equilibrium states. The glitchy background is dynamically connected to the sound track.

Part of All / aug 2014 / sound
Collection of experiments from 2012-2014.
