Art & Design

English  |  Español

Most of my work navigates the space between design and art, between functionality and personality, combining creativity, surprise, humor, and reuse. I'm motivated by finding a different use for objects originally built for a particular purpose — objects that due to generational change become obsolete and die. My challenge is to find them a new line of work, giving them an extended lifespan and making them useful again. When I see a mountain of junk, I see a mountain of possibility, of opportunity, something old in the world ready to reawaken as something new.

You can hear more about my designs in an interview I gave for Mondo Diseño, an Argentine television program. It's in Spanish; let me know if you'd like an English translation!

Cápsula

Cápsula

Cápsula is a series of sculptures that symbolize the passage of time in the industrial and technological eras, evoking Dadaism and Constructivism. Illumination plays an important role; the handle on each lamp regulates the intensity of light, incorporating into the design the sensation of operating industrial machinery. Each piece is made with scrap from sewing machines, cameras, computers, radios, television sets and other industrial objects.

TV Mirrors Tevés

TV Mirrors Tevés

Mirrors made from original screen housings of television sets from the 60's, 70's and 80's called Tevés. Tevés allow us to play with the idea of appearing on television — seeing ourselves reflected in old TV sets that exemplified those generations, and being the protagonist on the screen, with no commercials.

Los Boludos

Los Boludos are unique characters made of original vacuum tubes from old black and white television sets. In their story "The Outcasts of the Technological World", Los Boludos lay dormant in the bowels of an old TV that was last switched off in the year 1980; having reawakened, they are determined to find out just where it is they belong. Los Boludos are among us and have come to stay!

We all are full of bags! Shopping bags take up space, but even more so, they take up space in our minds, making us wonder what to do with them. Made from real album covers, these bag dispensers can store up to 40 used plastic bags and are a fun way to store them, keeping them tidy and ready for reuse.
