I am in the process of developing a new body of work, one that talks about memories and the theory of the multiverse.
My family history, specially a very complex relationship with my father, comes into play when trying to heal many years of mental instability, substance abuse and depression.
If a specific image looks different every time I pull it from my mental “hard disk”, is it the same memory?, did it happen just once or did it happen many times?, or am I visiting a different universe where everything ended up being different?
I'm trying to approach the idea of the "Archive" in a very physical way, Images are not enough for me to reconstruct important moments in my past; being able to touch and manipulate unknown and surprising objects that hold so much energy is a perfect way to create a fictional series of vignettes.
Quantum physics and mathematics are part of my research, an unconscious need to manipulate the past, fix the present and re-shape the future becomes evident in these photo exercises.
Revisiting the same memory over and over is something I do obsessively, mental images stored in my brain keep changing and evolving. I’m really interested in how details and the visual scenario of the past changes every time I go there; a series of incredible coincidences and accidents have made these images possible.
