Skills

All is all

Four desolate roads full of treasures.

My training and learning cover four main topics: Design, Arts, Science, Construction. It seems too much but for me, they are like four highways where I feel very comfortable driving. I build on these four pillars and will spend my entire life studying their contents. I will learn a little more about everything, every day.

I spent a lot of time trying to narrow my career field down to a single subject, but I learned that it will never happen. My life is different, and my professional life too. I'm restless and curious and I like to integrate new knowledge. I'm a transverse being by nature. You can take advantage of my skills or let me continue, that is your decision, but I will not stop.

Art

The crazy fascination with brushes and pencils.

I've pencils and brushes in my hands, since I was born. But I didn't study art at university, I've no degrees of any kind related to Art, or Art History. I did learn descriptive geometry, perspective, technical, mechanical, and architectural drawing in school and I learned to draw and paint autonomously seeing and doing. That being said, I’ve been painting and drawing for over 40 years. (Fine Art, Sketching).

And more…

In the past I was not interested in exhibiting my works, I had fun making art for myself and exclusively for others. Although I'm not seeking fame or glory, I currently present my work on a website dedicated exclusively to this. I preserve the need to "not prostitute art" for a few coins or for 15 minutes of fame, but be careful, I don't work for free if you want my art, you will have to pay for it.

Design Thinking

The wonderful idea of diverging and finding solutions.

I'm a design thinker. I've the ability to learn many different things constantly and in depth. I've the blessed ability to have different points of view at the same time. I can think as a scientist, an architect, an artist, or a semiotician. I can also think as a computer technician or as a poet. It can be complicated, but sometimes it is my best advantage.

Design Thinking is the best place ever found to be able to converge or diverge with all my points of view. It also allows me the freedom to sink into a deep brainstorm to calmly end with a possible solution to a problem. It is very beautiful.

Photography

The ephemeral eternity of halides and other amazing discoveries.

One day I woke up and my sister left me a Soviet-made camera on the bed. I put my eye on the eyepiece and the world appeared before me naked and full of grace.

It coincided that at that time I was studying physics at university, so it didn't cost me much to understand the operation of photography.

But that is not photography, there is something else that physics does not say. I found myself lacking tools that would allow me to use photographic language as a form of expression. That is not science. Transmit my vision of reality in images and, at the same time, be able to express my own inner world to others.

With my knowledge of plastic arts and the great help of my friends Nacho M and Diego D, I was able to gradually develop the capacity for reflection and analysis of contemporary visual arts. Then, with books and my innate research attitude, I could develop a perception and critical approach to reality, and I began to take seriously the profession of photography.

Today, I’m a chemical and digital photographer. It's simple.

Skills & Capabilities

  • Construction, production and circulation of photographic images.
  • Research in photography, for artistic and academic purposes.
  • Contextualize their visual production, their art and work, based on a theoretical and humanistic background.
  • Preventive conservation knowledge in photography.
  • Notions of video editing, multimedia editing package.
  • Passion for movies, graphic novels, science fiction, and general geek culture.

In addition to performing the Photography tasks, I focus on:

  • Conceptually exposing knowledge in relation to the expressive qualities of art.
  • I participate in interdisciplinary research projects on the photographic image, production conditions, representation and circulation.
  • Know, administer and coordinate the management of various instances of photography production and circulation.
  • Advice on programming, conception and realization of photographic artistic activities.
  • Coordinate and manage photographic projects.

And more…

I pay more attention to chemical photography and its image production processes than to digital processes. But I'm very versatile, (as expected in me). The methods of obtaining images for artistic purposes are in themselves my only purpose, I don't care too much about "how do I do it", but rather about "what and why do I do it".

Technologies

All the information at your feet, and the possibility of sharing it.

It all started in 98 when I was studying a degree in mathematics. I had access to the Internet and Linux System and the world opened up completely showing me everything that was to be done. I’ll never finish filling myself with so much possibility.

Every day there is something new to discover with technology. As there is much to discover, information must be organized and processed. I'm here for that.

I pay special attention in electronic instrumentation, the installation of radars and plotters, sonar, AIS and Antennas. Assistance in computer systems. VHF and SAT telecommunications and broadband Internet.

Green Culture and Building

I confess that I'm a "Mason" or "Master Builder" or "Maestri comacini" or "Baumeister" or "Mechanikoi"

How to explain the characteristics of my profession?

The Master Builder (or General Contractor) is the historical name of the "building masons" during the time of the great Gothic cathedrals, a branch in the construction profession, which was broken down from the functions of the architect who was synonymous until the "Modern Age".

At present, the Master Builder is also known as "construction manager", who is not necessarily an actor in the construction of a building, but does have an influence on all those who work on it. Its direct descendant has been the Building Engineer.

  • I can carry out the execution of gas network installations.
  • I can carry out the execution of electrical network installations.
  • I can carry out the installation of water and sewage distribution networks.
  • Expert knowledge of construction techniques.
  • I've authority over all the trades demanded of the construction; since I coordinate, control and direct their activity.
  • Interpret calculations carried out by the Engineer and designs prepared by the Architects.
  • Knowledge of history of architecture.
  • Architecture drawing and Urban design.
  • Knowledge of constructions materials and their skillful use.

In addition to performing the Master Builder tasks, I focus on:

  • Permaculture design.
  • Energy self-sufficiency.
  • Food self-sufficiency.
  • Mental self-sufficiency.
  • Economical self-sufficiency.
  • Self-sufficient construction system.

And more…

Being a Master Builder is not a joke. We have a history of construction behind us, that leaves no one indifferent. I've and maintain a historical and metaphysical affection for my job as a Master Builder, and every piece of stone, or wood, or brick that I use to build a house will be honored.
