Born in Medellin , Colombia (1980)
A Little Intro
My work deals primarily with language, how is created , how it’s perceived, and how arbitrary it can be. In order to work on this questions I’ve created my own system of symbols , my own alphabet. It’s linked with the concept of semiotics, the study of meaning- making , the study of sign processes and meaningful communication. This includes the study of signs and sign processes (semiosis).
I created a system 6 characters, that rotate on their own axis 4 times to make a total 24, then flipped one of them to make a 25th. This is my “Rosetta stone” or decoder. With this shapes I aim to show structures of language, or better yet I aim to play with a visual language, creating speech bubbles, palindromes, heaps of language and different metaphors to represent how we understand written and spoken language.
