INTERACTION DESIGNER, DEVELOPER, ARTIST

Born in Uruguay, I have always been passionate about technology and society’s relationship with it. With a formal background in development and interaction design, my work reflects upon what it means to be a connected human every day. Currently living in Geneva, Switzerland, I joined Transmii Studio, where I lead the research in human-computer interaction.

My interactive projects have been recognised with awards by Hochparterre Magazine and METAA.

Meta stories is an interactive project, a publishing house run by bots and artificial intelligence, that promotes the work of AI writers which create fictional stories from human, personal data. Meta stories won the 2020 Release Candidate Award, from METAA Association.

dSimon, created in collaboration with artist Simon Senn, is an on-stage reflection about the complexities of our relationship with AI. It has been shown in different venues across the world and has been featured by different media, such as France Info, Libération, BFMTV, Le Temps, RTS.

NO-PHOTO GALLERY is an interactive installation that uses computer vision and image classification algorithms to explore one of the underlying layers of contemporary photography. It was exhibited at the 2022 edition of Les Rencontres de la Photographie d'Arles.

I participated in the 2022 edition of GAES, a French platform for inspiring synergy between science and the arts.

I am currently working on new interactive projects in collaboration with artists from different fields.
