Studio

KAIXO!/HOLA!/HELLO!

I’m a MULTIMEDIA ARTIST & NEUROPHILOSOPHER who works as a freelance consultant in CREATIVE COMMUNICATION from my nomadic studio in Donostia-San Sebastián.creative

Since a very young age I realized that art, design, and technology help us envision and build alternative worlds… Now, in my middle age, with the desire to offer clues about the biological substrate of creativity and innovation I’m working on a synthesis that unites artistic practices with cognitive science.
