      "An empathy box is the most personal possession you have. It's an extension of your body; it's the way you touch other humans, it's the way you stop being alone" "I had hold of the handles of the box today and it overwhelmed my depression a little—just a little...I felt everyone else, all over the world, all who had fused at the same time" – Philip K. Dick, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? In Dick's novel, thousands of anonymous people connect haptically and emotionally through their empathy boxes in a fragmented and isolated world. Inspired by the story, the Empathy Box and Empathy Amulet are two networked devices that connect many anonymous people through shared warmth.

      DNA LIVE is an Audio Visual performance, where sound and image are generated from DNA, mRNA and Protein sequences. By translating the DNA, mRNA and Protein sequences of different Genes into MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface), I create MIDI files that are used to generate the sound and control the image variables in a real time environment. The Genes that I use for the live performance are Genes involved in the production, transport and reception of human neurotransmitters. DNA and mRNA are composed of four acids each, and their sequences are translated into four MIDI notes each, one note for each acid.

      Photographer. He is a Master of Photography from Goldsmiths University of London. His work focuses on landscapes in their physical form and patterns. His recent works focus on the border between the urban and rural landscapes of Broward Country in South Florida. As an urban space, there is a discrete physical appearance at its borders, with the ocean to the east and marshes to the west. His work points to the obvious appearance of these borders, which separates the urban and the rural.

      His photographic work focuses on the masses, people and travel. This has definitely changed the way you see the world and the people around you. Currently, he is embarking on a special photographic project, about the loneliness of people and their strategies to face it or avoid it in their daily life; the loneliness that people experience in large and impersonal cities.
