Here he began to dedicate himself exclusively to the bond between science, nature, art studies and experimental process. By the time he moved to Brazil in 2002, he started conceiving and realizing many different kinds of work, mixing kinetic and poetic works based on the mimesis of nature organic and fluid movements, wavy and bouncy, as can be seen in “oysterCube”, “glitterBot” and “fecundation”.
