The third Domestic Data Streamers intervention is a voting system for the candidates of the Behance Portfolio Review of Barcelona. By generating an ephemeral lab where data is literally turned into liquid, we are able to measure and visually perceive the votes made.
In exchange of a free year of Swing lessons I’ve done this little video for the school.
Human power exists in many ways, there is no better example than that which we exert on gardens, which is literally the taming of nature into ordered, symmetrical and static shapes.
Taming the Wild is an installation that reflects this dialogue between the natural course that leaves follow, and our ability to mould them into the forms that we wish.
Urban art has been from the beginning a way to interpellate the casual viewer, walls, banks or any surfaces with apparently no space for art were the target of this actions.
Color Tracks follows this philosophy, is the work that founds the spectator. The gallery can not be voluntary visited, must be the result of chance and there resides its value and impact.
During this last days of June I’ve been working at Falstad Center on Norway for REcall Project, specifically in the area of forest. REcall seeks to formulate a new role of the architectural environment based on invigorated research on the cultural landscapes of WWI and WWII and strengthen the attention on the management, documentation and preservation of this heritage.The project group see that any cultural landscape – i.e. architecture- is characterized by its dynamism, temporality and changing priorities in social perception.We stress that the research we develop will generate the values to be protected tomorrow. On the strength of this account, our project proposes the development of sustainable and innovative architectural practices for reuse, valorisation and communication of the XXth Century European Conflict Heritage considered as Cultural Landscape.

We’ve been there with Nankin Lab, proposing a constructive system using destruction as a constructive weapon. It’s been a great success with a big feedback, whereas the participation of visitors has been overwhelming. We want to thank the entire organization who has proactively collaborated to make this project possible and to Elisava School of Design and Engineering of Barcelona, for all the support they have given us. We can only say one thing, hope to see you next year!

The city has defined itself, since its origin, as a double territory with two qualities: to form a delimited space and, within that space, to connect to other territories. The elements of the city evolve in time, allowing its territory to grow out of its geographical and tangible limits. As a delimited space, it develops a public perception, not only visible (with the right to be overseen) but also accessible (with the right to be visited and experienced) by its inhabitants.
Having explored and experienced diverse aspects of the city during the three month residency program, Klaus Fruchtnis and Pau Garcia agreed to collaborate on a perception: forms that appropriate both time and space in order to create a new physical yet perceptual way to rediscover the city.Common ground: GPSme / Exitum, proposes flexible, simple volumes and continuous surfaces that translate their experience on the territory.
“The urban landscape, among its many roles, is also something to be seen, to be remembered, and to delight in.” The Image of the City, Kevin Lynch

With 3D Neighbours we were thinking in the best way to say goodbye to the earth if finally this 2012 is the last year before apocalipse.
Urban Wire Intervention
Hace unos días vimos esta pregunta perdida en un foro. Una tal Sandra quería saber como se libera un móvil. Una Sandra anónima, una Sandra que desde el 28 de diciembre del 2011 nadie le ha hecho caso. Nos hemos pasado toda la Semana Santa haciendo un vídeo para resolver esa duda anónima. ¿Como se libera un móvil? Aquí el vídeo.
We went to the prision of Quatre Camins with Persianes Lliures to do an art workshop with the interns. Amazing experience.
Long time ago I had a few problems with a hairdresser, then I designed this gadget. We’ve all had a bad hair cut. We’ve all thought about pay back. Part hairbrush, part knuckle busters that seem to be straight out of Sweeny Todd’s kit. The gadget presumably sticks-it to Lluís Batlle Llongueras, a famous Spanish hair stylist whose chain of salons carry his name. It features wood-engraved artwork and the expression:
“God bless you.”
Edmon Stay is a guy with a huge problem, every time he blink, he appears in other side. Obviously that could bring you some problem on the ordinary life.
There are a few things on Elisava that I enjoyed 100% with no dark side. One is the coffe robot, that if you want it gives you more sugar for free, and the other is the Theater Team of Elisava School.
