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 to create better futures of food, where I believe in  design and art as key agents to generate critical thinking. I have been exploring it through art performances, workshops and artifacts.

 

In 2016 I started an art collective with Gaston 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 Coco, a personal project where I design wearable sculptures that questions fashion breaking with dichotomies of gender, jewelry, arts, and futures.

 

A close to knomad lifestyle allowed my work to get inspired by diverse contexts, bridging the narratives of art and culturES 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 School, Tilburg University, HIT Holon Institute of Technology among other institutions.
