I am currently a PhD candidate at the School of Arts, Technology and Emerging Communication and the University of Texas at Dallas, in Dallas, Texas. My creative dissertation explores how contemporary cultural institutions that have progressive values are using emerging technologies to engage the public as agents of change.
I am an artist, researcher and educator interested in public interactives, interactive art, critical theory, radical pedagogy and art as social practice. Part of my work consists on exploring the relationships constructed between new technologies and the body. My research also investigates interactive media in public spaces (especially in places of education and cultural reproduction) and its accompanying political, social and cultural discussions. My art practice is inspired by Latino authors and magical realism, seeking, through the creation of absurd or surreal experiences, to encourage participants to question norms and rules.
