+CODE
Electronic Art Festival

+CODE is conceived in 2015 as a framework to exhibit and develop the notion of code in art and to explore how is employed in the artistic practice -media and technology- to generate a space for reflexion on its themes and its aesthetics.

Amplitud

“Amplitud” is a documentary that gathers the voices of referents of the Argentinean scene of electronic art. It is a moment in which new manifestations and wide-circulation spaces arise. This comes along with new opportunities to go over the local production of works of art with new media.

Interaction design

Selected projects (from 2011 to 2017) where I was involved as team lead and interaction designer. Working with outstanding and innovative teams as Estado Lateral, +Castro or as an independent developer.

Most of them created using Arduino, Processing and, sometimes, very strange and unusual physical interfaces.

Processing and IoT local communities

With artists, developers among other colleagues we created our local communities to share and learn form our experiences creating new media technologies and artworks. Conferences, workshops and talks. As co-coordinator I worked organizing the meetups and activities.
All of this events were made with the effort of a great local community.

You can join us Processing Buenos Aires and Internet of Things Buenos Aires.

Civic Tech Projects

In the role of Product Owner of the Argentinean NGO Wingu, I work in the development of huge projects together with other NGOs from Latin America.
Open Data, citizen-oriented platforms and simplicity are the values to make this kind of projects, transforming problems into data, and finally into useful open source tools to improve their missions.

Some selected projects are Informal Settlements Platform, from Techo, and Torre de Control, from Project Poder.
