[I’m obsessed with clouds]
Still soaring, as if some celestial call
Impell’d it to yon heaven’s sublimest hall;
High as the clouds, in pomp and power arrayed,
Enshrined in strength, in majesty displayed;
All the soul’s secret thoughts it seems to move,
Beneath it trembles, while it frowns above.
Encoded poetics is a two-bodied project with the same intention at the core, experiment with language visually and physically through gene-editing tools.
I don’t know if it’s a good thing or a bad one, the fact that even I know, there will be no control on the outcome, I do have a very clear idea in my head of the plasticity that I’m looking for.

There have always been two lines under Biomaterials that fascinates me. One is the research that is primarily done for health, where the article of the heart vessels made out of spinach leaves hits right on the spot. I guess it talks directly with the notion that everything in nature is connected and we are closer in structure as with any other leaving been. And the second one is all the uses for architecture, like the bricks made out of fungi or the domes that are made using silk caterpillars. It gave me an idea of what if instead of this fantasy of cyborg superhumans, were metal, circuit and metals have been part of our imagination; the reality moved more to a holistic relationship. What if our hearts and houses were restored by caterpillars?
The origin of love
Wicked little town – reprise
with a stranger
What if humans were gene edited thousand of years ago? What if the gods were versed on gene-editing tools and we thought of their science as a supernatural force; the so-called Divine Providence?
-Post under construction-
At the moment I have two ideas:
1. A programming language for biology (inspired by Scratch), a gene editing tool simulator.
2. A voyager bacteria. Insert meaningful data on a bacteria. What if we don’t longer exist but want to be remembered, where to stored our history. Poetics on bacteria
