Bio: I’m a new media artist and creative coder from Barcelona. I focus my practice in code, electronics and non-digital objects for creating interactive projects often framed as experimental games, which aim to go beyond the game itself. From educational to sociological approaches, my interest lies in the de-hierarchization of traditional art relations. With my works, I have participated in different festivals such Ars Electronica, Japan Media Arts Festival, FILE Festival or Sónar, among others, and I have also done residences in TAG Montreal, an EMARE Residency at QUT (Brisbane) and Platohedro (Medellin).

Project:
At this moment I am working on a long-term research project around robots, artificial intelligence and social relations. The purpose of this research is to create an interactive installation based on a hybrid multi-agent social simulation. The multi-agent system is based in a master environment and a series of intelligent networked robots. The robots have wheels and different sensors that allow them to move, feel and communicate with the environment. They also have AI software that allows them to have their own personality, social status, and to learn and communicate verbally with others. The main objective is to visualize and analyze the power relations within a society in a physical way, through objects that represent the different individuals, their status and behaviour in a procedural simulated world. I’d like to bring some of this devices to the Dinacon and see how they interact with that environment.
