The Invisible Thread: Canvas by Onda de Mar

The thing about mirrors is how they trick us into believing we are something that we are not: adjectives; adverbs; al those voices come to mind. I’m not at all what you see; I’m (like you) just a soul trapped inside a body going through the human experience. And yet, the story this mirror tells, […]

Then she fell: On immersive experiences that can’t be shared

The funny, and perhaps unexpected side-effect of technology is that it keeps building invisible layers between us: we live through our phones and get the news and the information that we like, rarely the full picture or the things we actually need to know. We also hoard ‘knowledge’ through never-ending bookmarks, pictures and videos, without really absorbing what that knowledge means as we quickly move on to something else.

On transitions and creating a statement

There are two kinds of transitions: some simply ‘happen’, (for example you meet someone who eventually becomes a turning point in your life), and others are marked on a calendar, like births and weddings.   This  is a moment of transition for me on every level. After 33 years and an awful lot of experimentation, […]

On crafting your own narrative

Your past is what happened to you, but the future is how you interpret it and use it to create the narrative of your life. I could say my mother left me when I was 7 years old, but in time I’ve come to realize that by not being with me, she gave me an […]

Our digital selves

This video is a cathartic experiment that explores the narcissistic relationship we’ve developed with our phones, in the hope that by being aware of it, we figure out a way to make things better, or at least produce content that brings out the best in people.

To all the versions of myself, with love

Somewhere not too far away from here, there’s another version of me. Actually there’s more than one. We co-exists in parallel universes, and we meet for brief moments, lost in thoughts, as we look at each other in the mirror wondering what life would look like from each other’s perspective. First there’s Maya. She came […]

On Fear of Success

Ideas. Projects. Dreams. We all have them, but we seldom pursue them to their fullest extent. Blame it on time. Blame it on money. Blame it on someone else. The real blame will only be on you. Perhaps you are afraid of success, like I was. This is my story.

The parallel universes we inhabit

It’s easy to say that it’s the journey that counts, not the destination, and it’s true, but how often do we forget the other crucial element: the place where the journey begins: the contrast between being born in one place versus another, in one skin, one culture, one language, one color and the impact that […]

If you don’t believe me, stare at a newborn straight in the eye, and you’ll understand what I mean. They know. You knew. We […]

Art Basel 2018 : The power of silent Conversations

Art. Artist. Creation. Creativity.
Such imposing words. So intimidating. So distant.
And yet, we can all appreciate art as beauty, as a question.
As an emotion.
But what is it that we love so much about art? . Is it perhaps the beauty of it all? Is it that it materializes the value of an emotion. Or is it simply knowing that behind every piece there’s silence. So much silence in a world where noise is a constant. We’re starving for silence and that’s exactly what it seems that artists have. The opportunity to listen to their minds. Opportunities to create. Space. Solitude. Yes. we might just be buying the materialization of the greatest commodity of our time. Silence.

Black Canvas: Once upon a Braid

You can only understand your journey from the perspective of your future self. When you’re living in the present there’s way too much noise.

I don’t remember where this journey began; all I know is I found myself one day trapped inside this body, trying to make sense of the world around me.

The Future: What if we were brave enough to care?

What’s happening to the world?  Where are we headed? I had never felt so concerned in regards to the current state of the planet, specially when it comes to politics: I don’t understand how this became such a complicated world all of a sudden. Perhaps it has always been this way, but I’m older and more […]
