Over the past three years my interests have focused on the exercises with processual-experiential bases where historical references are dissolved in a plane of experience. Situations have arisen where unpredictable failure allowing the effort contained in them may be the scale that determines the scope of work regardless of functional purposes, or materials.

Presentation strategies used are a starting point to discuss practical ways creating a type of work that can survive based more on oral communication possibilities in its visuals. Being particularly interested in the various possibilities of drawing as a historical document recovery tool memory.
