Typology Some years ago I began to collect bottles that had contained products that I had spent. A little because some of them I liked and I thought his design was beyond its aesthetic function â€œcontainâ€?, I liked the idea of recycling and reuse, I even got to fall in love with some of them. At some point I felt like they were part of me, in fact in many cases the content was within me; vitamins, juices, soft drinks, oils, condiments, ice cream, jams, etc. (Now I also ask my friends). Them I initiated to do this with other objects, toys, cups, Shoes, etc. I began to classify them, photograph them and reflect about the idea of form and content -Old dilemma- the relation between indoor-outdoor, the outside-inside, the obsession to accumulate and store these objects that are true sculptures of contemporary industry that designs and redesigns all and presents them in the most seductive and compelling way. What makes these small sculptures that surround us in anthropological objects? Certainly is given all information about us, how we live, what we eat and of course, who we are. WI

Eggs. Paraphrasing Gerardo Mosquera I would question “can we portray the inanimate?” Also say: “Maybe if we mean to portray the different uniqueness of things.” Photographing hundred eggs individually I try to reveal the particularity of each while communicating their differences, is like saying that all are equal but also everyone is different, above generalizing the notion of “eggs”, some larger, some smaller, some darker, some lighter, some more red, others yellow… In short, that the universe always reminding us of our own nature through each detail.
