“Karōshi-Empire State Of Mind” corresponds to the variety of materials, processes and textures, towards an energized thermal imagery inspired on ‘Brain Scan’ about human brain forms and shapes through stress.
I used thermochomic pigments, which change colour at specific temperatures and UV pigment, which glows in the dark, to picture the exploration of the connections between colour and knowledge, even as they intoxicate us visually. “Karōshi-Empire State Of Mind” is the representation of deadly beauty, ideal to be displayed in stressed work environments such as offices, GP’s Hall Reception or Hospitals.
“Karōshi-Empire State Of Mind” is made of Acrylics, Silicone, Ink, Themochromic pigments and UV pigment. Dimensions: 3 pieces 28.7 x 21.7 x 0.06 cm, 1 piece 36.7 x 21.7 x 0.06 cm, 15 Petri dishes 11 x 1cm.
"Public Encounter" is a public sculpture placed on the facade of St. Peter Upon Corn Hill Church, Grace Church Street, EC 3 in the heart of 'The City of London'. The sculpture symbolizes how night laborers and day workers are unified through the act of commuting and represents the merging of the two communities when they leave or enter into the City.
Those laborers and workers are silhouettes made of hand cut Mild Steel and is displayed on a ‘Prism Image’. The metal picture surface consists of prism-shape slats mounted vertically containing either two or three subject, planes in such a way as to form a system of compartments, which can be viewed from two angles. This made it particularly suitable for representing symbolic subject matter, which exposes ‘Unity’.
I am projecting a vocabulary of human gestures that serves as building’s ornaments and also stands for my philosophy of political representation that visualizes social relations.
“Public Encounter” is made from Mild Steel. Dimensions: 197 x 120 x 10cm. Each silhouette: 40cm.

I discovered amazing ways to stimulate my mind during personal and group brain storming sessions, which offered me the possibility to respond in an articulate manner to a theme set up by a designer. The whole thought process actually appeared challenging and brought me to engage with the project following the directions given by a client and develop thoughts on the basis of pre existing ideas, which were already on display in a gallery space. My installation is the result of my engineered construction of a bridge, between in one side my visions and in the other side the works of a designer. I also learned to work under the wills of a patron ‘s requests.
