I am a Colombian artist and semiotician. I believe cultural knowledge should be accesible and open to wide audiences, and it should make part of our everyday lives and thoughts. Towards that belief, my work revolves around semiotics —a discipline that studies meaning and interpretation— and how it can help us to understand the ways we make sense of the world, our relation with others and our creative expression. My academic interests are close to cognitive semiotics, biosemiotics, cultural criticism, and digital mediation. I also like to paint, draw, and sometimes I try to make music.
