I use textile materials and techniques, and most recently also sound, to explore experiences, as well as to make artworks that aim to become the vehicle to create new ones. My most recent project, New Universe: Discovering Other Possibilities, was born from my interest to explore the learning processes that occur between a mother and her child. What and how we learn, when do we learn, where do we learn, and from whom do we learn are some of the ideas that I have been investigating through and for this project. New Universe presents a group of works that take as their starting point moments and experiences within the family and in particular through the child-mother relationship. From these experiences, my creations explore ideas related to discovery, invention and the unknown. Thus, there are pieces born from daily activities such as playing, time spent with family and care labor, as well as those born from conversations with other parents and research. In its entirety the project included and exhibition, a workshop and several activities during a three month period at the Textile Museum and Documentation Centre in Terrassa, Barcelona, Spain. This project is still growing.
