Art, science and technology, interdisciplinary collaboration, process, perception, interactive installation, olfaction.

As an artist I am engaged in interdisciplinary research in collaboration with scientists, including olfaction, memory and visual perception. This includes collaborative projects in Japan: Olfactory Art and Science Research (Tokyo Institute of technology, Kyoto Saga University), Retroreflective Projection Technology (Tachi Lab, Keio University) and Saccade Based Display (NTT). In 2010 I was Visiting Researcher at the Graduate School of Media Design, Keio University, Japan.

I am a WRHI Visiting Professor at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, affiliated to the Nakamoto Laboratory.

In my painted constructions and installations I explore ambiguities in perception of space through two and three dimensional images. I also create site specific artworks that challenge spatial perception in architectural environments, with installations exhibited in Havana, Cuba and Tokyo, Japan.
