When graduating at Elisava School of Design I got immersed in the food field with my thesis in collaboration with el Celler de Can Roca, rethinking the user experience in high cuisine. Since then it started my personal concern around the eating experience which I tackle from the design and artistic perspective towards the progression of the urgent change of paradigm it needs to happen.

 

In 2016 I started an art collective with Gastón Lisak, Carlos J. Navarro and Daniel Armengol, called Random Happiness. A space to act and react towards today’s culture using happiness as a revolutionary tool, which moved us to keep on experimenting until today.

From researching the interaction human-object I founded Liza Cocö, a personal project where I design wearable sculptures that questions fashion braking with the dichotomies of gender, jewelry, arts, and futures.

 

A close to knomad lifestyle allowed my work to get inspired by diverse contexts, exploring the potential of bridging the narratives of arts and cultural aspects around the world. Furthermore, it gave me the opportunity to collaborate with individuals and entities as with Michelangelo Pistoletto at the Rebirth Forum of La Habana, the Tate Exchange or Open Restaurants Jerusalem, as well as to impart classes and workshops in Elisava, Tilburg University, HIT Holon Institute of Technology among other institutions.
