Since my first individual exhibition (Esquemas, 1995), I have been working in the electronic arts. I believe that the new technologies in art provide us with new ethical questions; in my work the question is always present: What's behind all this? This is how works such as Feet on the Ground, a video installation in which I used 30 1.5-meter-high pneumatic spheres as a "screen" on which to project garbage-images of the Internet and TV, emerged; viewers had to find their way through the work to the "exit door," turning into active participants. The products of scientific and artistic creation that resound in global activities often contain a dual load that goes between profit or benefit and manipulation. In this context, I have made such works as The Line, a video artwork about the Fibonacci sequence and the complexity of the universe; Laser Hand (Laberinto Sonoro, 2001); and the Net performance No Logo, done for H8Fulworld, in which I participated along with other seven artists from various parts of the world, connected in real time and presented at the Festival of Cinema and New Media in Montreal, Canada.
