0. Statement

I link art and science into the development of experimental research and production strategies. My work entails a network of models that observe the complex socio-geopolitical processes behind the nuclear arms race and its exponential escalation; revealing the simple principles, rules and patterns that govern human behavior. I have extensive experience in the production of video, motion graphics and special effects; as well as in the conceptualization of integral research systems that articulates the work of art as a model for the analysis of reality.
