Here you can find my experimentes using algorithms and machines to create physical art works, I explore the relationship between what exactly is described in an algorithm and the unpredictability of its physical implementation by the use of a machine.

Abstraction is rooted on our human visual feedback system.

Lines are drawn to mimic the process of hand drawing-painting. Sketches are generated by image segmentation, filtering, shape selection and depiction, relying on a personal and physical understanding of human visual perception.

All drawings-paintings are originals and were made by a machine that I've build.

Gallery will always have the latest experiments and projects that I'm currently working on.

Open Call Pequenos Formatos at Galeria Monumental (2023)

This is a series of penplotter drawings, generated with an original line drawing algorithm, from a set of old postcards. These were specifically made for this open call.
