Lives and works in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Works with video and photography incorporating visual production subjects from physics and linguistics proposing a deconstructed approach to the historiographical writing of the present.


"Torsion" is about a railway that crosses the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais which is famous for intense mineral exploitation. The footage shot in a defective VHS tape shows the view from the train window, decadent buildings, and industries, where no people are seen, like a ghost town lost in time. The soundtrack follows the images in a sad and distorted guitar tune. This video is bad because it presents bad images of a bad place to live.
