-is the result of a deep and long personal investigation around the sensitive body: a device that stores, process and exchange information.  In this project, four bodies are existing in the space, navigating between the tension of their memories and desires. As never finished structures, these bodies transit different stages from the immediacy of their intimacy to public and unknown territories. 

"It wasn’t then, nor now.

This body is all that is not mine. It is part of the landscape,

it is part of a matter separated in 7 billion pieces.

This body is part of my memories and desires.

The back of my ankle aches when you scream into the night.

My muscles tremble when you shudder with cold.

My shoulder blades are the continuation of your dreams.

And my arm is part of your chest, and your toes.

This body is everything that I don’t see, it is all that is not mine.”
