• About me

    I'm a Digital Designer who loves pixels and everything they can do. I always put all my effort to show the values of creativity, energy, perfectionism, commitment and enthusiasm at challenges, in order to solve the design problems that fall on my hands.

    I consider myself a geek girl. I love technology, music, cinema – specially Sci-Fi –, Marvel comics, playing videogames and watching TV series.

    In this site you can find some of my personal projects and my work experience in companies.

    Of course, feel free to contact me and say "Hello".

  • Beyond#15M

    [2011 - 2012]
    This project was my Final Degree Project. It begins with the hypothesis: Twitter is more than a microblogging platform, it's a social empowerment tool which was very important during social movements like the #15M Movement.

    Beyond #15M consists of a visual and audible online platform, built with Processing, that represents tweets that thousands of people sent to Twitter during this social movement. At the moment it only shows the posts of the campings period (from 13-05-2011 to 12-06-2011). The goal was to get a collective narration, an alternative story of this important event.

  • Machinefy

    This project was born from the idea of creating computer speech using its language and aesthetics.

    Is a computer capable of creating a story from its memory? A computer always identifies what it sees from pixels, bits or binary code. With this in mind, I've thought about a project that simulates the computer understanding, giving to it some powers established by me. This understanding has been limited with three perception levels: real or human, oneiric and artificial.

    This project is a part of an experimentation process with the computer, its context and the information it processes from different perspectives, like in this case: what are understanding and interpretation.

    The Machinefy demo was built with Flash ActionScript 3.0. It works with the famous Bruce Lee's interview video. The program "decides", using random systems, which part of the video it has to jump to and which perception level it has to show. These random systems calculate these decisions, and how long these decisions persist
