Mexican artist, architect and co-founder of The Bittertang Farm, a small design farm that strives to bring happiness and pleasure into the built world by referencing that pleasurable world which surrounds us. The work explores multiple themes including pleasure, frothiness, biological matter, animal posturing, babies, sculpture and coloration all unified through bel composto. Our explorations are based in digital and visceral matter with output transitioning between scales and localities leaving our traces of frothy matter in various disciplines. Although trained as architects our prolific interests and methodology associates us closely to the organization of a farm. Bittertang material is breed, coaxed and grown to yield tasty morsels, beautiful new exotic beasts and fertilizer for future growth. New at Bitterang: we are cultivating our animals for sale to the design and boutique hotel markets. First up is a pony that glows green with the addition of bioluminescent algae genes. Digging deep into the fertile detritus left by thousands of years of human history and artifacts our goal is to add thick rich fodder to contemporary material culture.
