The tragic incompletion of reality incites me to tell things in an abstract-dissimulated manner.

For me, the refusal of any particular history and its replacement with something ghostly, blind, mute, is part of an ethical process, not imposing to the public my knowledge, my experience, or information about a specific place.

Through the Dustography series, I suggest the contemplation and awareness of a being alone together, a place where we would appear as both social and singular beings, where feelings of loneliness, vulnerability, exclusion and lack of community are very important, but without passing as confessions.

The figurative as inner silence, a silent violence facing political, social, and aesthetic occurences.
