Evolving as a designer has brought me on a path where I’m continuously looking for new ways on how to explore the world. By studying design at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna I entered the field of speculative design, learning about methods on how to ask questions about the present and investigate potential futures. Through my designs I want to open up perspectives and suggest alternatives on how to look at culture and everything that comes within it.
Having grown up myself with two cultures, the Austrian and the Colombian, I have always felt the urge of discovering different approaches, staying open to the unknown and finding my own way in between all these diverse possibilities. During my search for those contrasts I have made internships in Vienna, Medellin, New York getting to know different points of view, but also recognizing that there are many things that unite us all.
