I am a visual artist and designer that explores the intersection between sensing technology with projection design. My work focuses on the perception of projected light and the exploration of the “mathematical wonderland” of interactive art. I combine my artistic activity with academic and scientific research. I am also the creative director of and directed projects for clients such as Vimeo, National Geographic, Scion and C3.

In the last decade, I have presented his work and vision in several International Art festival, such as SXSW, Burning Man, Boom Festival, Symbiosis, Lightning in a bottle, Lollapalooza, Kernel Festival, Midi Festival, Aurora Festival, Plunc Festival, to name a few, and collaborated with artists such as Tipper, VitaMotus, Quixotic, Yacov Sharir, Emika, Sorne, among many many others. In the core of this work is the collaborative creative process. In 2014, I was invited to do Video Art direction for Boom Festival.

 I recently finish my P.hD. at the University of Texas, Austin, in augmented reality design, and I have a Master of Multimedia Arts in University of Porto, Portugal. I have been giving workshops and talks s about my work and process, and also doing artistic residencies and publishing his work in International conferences. I lectured at the ESG University, Portugal, from 2007 to 2010 in Design and Multimedia Production. In 2010 I moved to the United States -Austin- to pursue my P.hD.
