title Performative Agency of Materials: Matter agency of vernacular African pattern systems
source Living Systems and Micro-Utopias: Towards Continuous Designing, Proceedings of the 21st International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2016) / Melbourne 30 March–2 April 2016, pp. 641-650
summary This paper investigates an agency of materials through a design methodology that follows Martin Heidegger’s process of “Entbergen” or “unconcealing” as a non-instrumentalist understanding of tools and materials. This investigation takes place through the de- sign of a children’s theatre in South Africa where material innovation for architectural components is needed. The research studies vernacu- lar African patterns and their inherent behaviour when transferred to materials. The transference of pattern systems to architectural proto- types is discussed alongside the discussion of their technical and ar- chitectural performance criteria. Following Heidegger’s theory of “Entbergen” (“unconcealing”) the paper will demonstrate how making in this methodology becomes an “unconcealing”, which includes both digital and analogue means, linking the four causalities - causa mate- rialis, causa formalis, causa finalis, and causa efficiens – through the agency of material within an integrated process between all four caus- es. Making becomes a process in which form is generated through in- terventions within fields of forces and currents of materials, taking cause and agency into account, and standing in opposition to methods that are defined by a premeditated notion of an ideal outcome.

title Vasarely Genético (Genetic Vasarely)
source SIGraDi 2003 - [Proceedings of the 7th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Rosario Argentina 5-7 november 2003
summary This work is a software application where the user will be able to go over a collection of optic art paintings, which are computer generated (they reproduce Victor Vasarely's works style). By selecting two of these paintings, the user will obtain a third one that will inherit their characteristics. The aim of this work is to generate a collection of paintings, which evolve according to the users' taste. For this purpose, we drew the analogies between the genetic evolution of living beings and their natural selection process to adapt themselves to the environment.

title Mundo Circular. Ejemplo low-tech de realidad aumentada e interfaces tangibles [Mundo Circular. Tangible interfaces and low-techaugmentedreality]
source SIGraDi 2011 [Proceedings of the 15th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Argentina - Santa Fe 16-18 November 2011, pp. 294-297
summary This work is about the relationship between socio-political matters and communications aspects in every country around the world. The data collected from ITU (International Telecommunication Union), UN, UNESCO, FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization), WTO and World Bank, show contrast among countries with more available resourcesand those who hasn't. The interface use augmented reality patterns to allow the user know the differences between the values expressed by each country, in a visual and intuitive way.
