He has produced video installations, site-specific projects, actions, interventions and graphic works through the use of photography, typing, photocopying and other media. He has also made multi-channel sound installations and composed a music between electroacoustic and spatiality. Since 2000 he has taken part in events from several artistic territories, especially in America and Europe. In 2007 he accomplished a Distinction Award of Prix Ars Electronica.
