Ongoing project
2005—2019
Since the beginning of 2006, I started a social ritual: taking an instant picture of everyone I knew (friends, family, or colleagues), and then, of new people I had the chance to meet in my life. The idea of this social experiment that I titled with the popular expression Small World, in Spanish El Mundo es un pañuelo, was to check if the theory of the six degrees was true. Broadly speaking, it tries to prove that any person on Earth can be connected to another through a chain of acquaintances that has no more than five intermediaries. Currently, the project consists of more than 1000 photographs, several versions of maps both in paper and in an atlas, and 20 albums with the original pictures and anecdotic texts that connect different people. I also did a series of 54 paintings and drawings that, together with a giant Rubik's cube, represent a part of the Colombian art scene as well as other Works depicting social divisions in my home country.

Project
2017—August
The title of this project refers to the Greek origin of the word horoscope, which is the person who contemplates time. The horoscope interests me not only because it is a manifestation of various themes that have been present throughout my work, such as destiny and time, but also because of its direct relationship with literature and the formulas of writing. It is also a traditional graphic piece that has appeared in the press since the beginning of modernity and a reflection on how we, as human beings, construct our thinking. On the one hand, based on beliefs and ideologies, which is the result of a passionate and emotional living, and on the other, thanks to an analytical and rational capacity. From these thoughts and ideas, as well as a collection of all the horoscopes of the Taurus sign (2009), I did three works: 365 days (a painting), 12 months (a series of photographs of writers accompanied by manuscripts drawn in pencil) and 52 weeks (a video with subtitles made out of the horoscope). Each one of these works corresponds to a different analysis of writing and its mental process. The backdrop, or what I like to imagine, is that behind all of this is the monotonous and melancholic life of a "ghostwriter".

Project and short novel
2015—2016
This project is a short novel and an exhibition. The writing is a narration, from the point of view of a retired, widowed woman of 65 years that decides to dedicate most of her time to learn how to swim. This argument is the central point of the entire work that, little by little, begins to touch on topics such as faith, the decline of life, memory, and the architectural deterioration of a place. While writing, in a coming and going of creative processes, I was imagining the possibilities that this story had within the language of the Visual Arts. The result is an exhibition that encompassed all the rooms and spaces on the ground floor of the 12:00 Gallery located in the San Felipe neighborhood of Bogotá. A journey, by moments or chapters, in which the viewer could find works in various media and formats, such as drawing, painting, graphic series, and videos that take up, symbolically and metaphorically, parts of the literary text.

*Serendipity: the possibility that something extraordinary might occur.

For over two years, SI decided to put an ink stamp on every bill (bank note) that passed through my hands. I would then photocopy them and make a note of the date, place and the transaction they were used for. This was done in the hope of finding out whether any of the bills would ever come back to me. However, whether this happened or not, the basic premise of the exercise was to imagine the possible courses, stories and paths that a bill can take on its journey through the world. The end result is a small entry book containing 65 copies of the bills, a series of portraits of the people who received them and several drawings and maps which complement this exercise in mathematical probability. I plan to produce a new exhibition if one day one of the stamped bills happens to return to him.
