"I try to offer original insights which have emerged from my journey
in the internet during the last six years. You can discovery by
yourself a big picture of an emerging culture, to be translated
into your own open-ended navigation charts for the fast changing
territory of life in a new era. A divulgative work made in a weblike
way, that can be enjoyed, read and used on many levels."

"today files look at you through a square window, the screen is
flat, but human perception is not. with context graphics i try to
escape flatland, increase the number of dimensions that are revealed
in a visual image or graph, talk to words to dig an understanding
conversation, a back and forth electric short-circuit to construct
meaning; diverse approaches to enlarge and enhance context."

"Music is alive, going from one extreme to another. Each sound
of our quotidian things can be used to create, to reorder noise
and turn it to an expression of feelings. *X-flow*
is a project with no rules, that means no dependence of structures,
non lineal construction, is more a deconstruction of my feels. Mind
has no inner rules. With X-flow I try to create sound landscapes.
I assume that music is not just songs... So I also create cuts to
be used as interchangeable loops. X-flow is a kind of searching."

"you wanna go there? you wanna built it? you've got the looks,
i've got the brains? or she's got the looks, you've got the brains,
we have the words? or no one's got nothing, hence nothing to lose?
okay, so this all spills into some transition i'm sure.... into
the gang i'm gonna turn you all into. into the imagefuckers, wordfuckers,

"In the last few years I've questioned myself several times, as
many others, how the fast changes in communication and production
technologies would influence the ways we live [learn/work/play].
One of the answers could be a stimulant 'you decide how'. For many
of us, not scientists, technicians nor artists, but maybe a little
mixture, this situation could be seen as an opportunity to grow."
