His work being between Documentary and Contemporary Art, he has developed a style described as an iconographic selection of the reality underlying the day-to-day life and its trivial aspects.
From 2006 to 2009 “ Human Version 2.0”.
For this project, the intent was to work on the genesis of humanoid robots. Special attention was brought to their places of creation, the evolution of their physical appearance and the tools and materials used to bring them to life. The aim was to show these robots in their own environment, without dramatizing, as if they were already part of our eveyday lives.
