From my own codes, I inquire about the human being, about our frustrations, our joys, sadness, and contradictions within the chaos that is our modernity. We live in an always-changing world, where everything takes place at almost extreme velocities, a world each day more globalized where identities are being gradually lost. That is why we see so many absurdities in our quotidian life. In this work, the surfaces are taken as the most suitable space for the multicultural mixture. It is the result of my love for the quotations, as well as the hybrid. All this cluster of objects and characters live together in a huge bookshelf resembling apartment buildings.
