Nunca he sabido a ciencia cierta de dónde surge mis inquietudes. Pienso que son simplemente un impulso creativo-destructivo. Hago arte vivo, una especie de performance, sin embargo raramente aparezco, me interesa más lo que siente la gente, jugar a cambiar sus perspectivas y que ellos jueguen a la vez con lo que sienten-piensan. En el mejor de los casos la experiencia resultará transformadora desde cada interpretación.

Muchos años me cuestione mi aferramiento al arte. Ahora me doy cuenta que he sido prolífico, pero hay muy pocas cosas documentadas, la mayoría se han perdido y solo quedan en la memoria de mi cuerpo y quizá del cuerpo de aquellos que jugaron conmigo. Soy un artista de closet pienso; uno que no tiene trayectoria, ni discurso, ni lenguaje, y mucho menos técnica. Con el tiempo me he dado cuenta que tipo de artista soy. Mi lenguaje son la provocación y la evocación, una de la mano de la otra.

Mi técnica es la biología de las emociones y la biología de los deseos. Y mi discurso esta fundado en la creencia que vivimos en opresión. Y que en primera instancia lo que hago es para liberarme, como consecuencia facilitar un camino hacia la auto-liberación por medio de la ciencia y el arte.

The Biology of Will.


Habituation and conformity with the status quo stabilizes peoples emotional systems. Longings and deepest veiled desires constitute potential energy that is constricted over time due the operation of emotional contradictions that inhibit action. Energy seems to be unavailable constrained by the psyche and stuck due to one or more emotional contradictions. It is through two linguistics operations and reflection that longings may be transformed into desires, producing entropy in the living system. Through a harmless and simple self-guided exercise participants’ are able to integrate their psyche and overcome the paradoxical nature of their own emotions that may be constricted due to frustration, resignation or resentment. The intra-psychic effect of art unifies emotions, body, and mind, recreating the sense of oneness and interconnectedness. Furthermore, the realm of imagination and the symbolic language evoked during the transformational ritual, opens possibilities to create a structural changes in participants emotional systems. This changes can go from an ephemeral transformation, to continuing cultural transformation process inspired by Animal archetypes and a continuing reflection process including mind-body interactions. In summary the performance constitutes a self-liberating process driven by participant's biology of will.


For the last 4 years I have experimented with performance art to analyze and explain bio-pyscho-cultural phenomenons focused on emotional well-being and mental health. My research is founded on Maturana's cultural-biology, and a systemic emotional framework that I developed. To produce data and test generative mechanisms, I had created a transformational game practice entitled Animalia. Animalia is a transformational game that enhances intuition through emotional expression and the embodiment of desires represented by Animals.

Revisiting Mexico's Ancient Spiritual Traditions: A Path to Inspire Modern Life and Overcome Colonialism and Patriarchy


Our current historical moment demands awareness and compassion to deliberately transform ourselves from the extractive, exploiting and aggressive nature of colonialism in favor of kindness, equality, and inclusiveness. In accordance, we believe that Mexico’s Ancient Nahual Spirituality — a pre-colonial complex belief system rooted in a sacred relationship with nature— can serve as a guide. Nahual’s philosophy, alive in today’s Mexican contemporary culture, has survived 300 years of Spaniard domination that turned Mexico into a predominant catholic country. Beyond syncretism, Nahual spirituality thrived through the oral tradition. Abuelas transmitted from one generation to the next a belief system deeply intertwined with the history and cosmology of indigenous groups such as Olmecas, Mayas and Aztecs. This millennial spirituality has been preserved through a myriad of rituals, such as Cacao and Temazcal Ceremonies, Plant healing, Spiritual Animals, etc. Nahuales now guide new generations on alternative ways to embrace peace, compassion, courage and the will to reclaim the authority to lead a peaceful and loving cultural transformation. Due the pre-colonial nature of Nahualism, it honors values that are in opposition to the European patriarchal mindset that lead to Colonialism; e.g. abundance and a sacred relationship with nature versus scarcity, extraction and exploitation; unity among masculine and feminine, and the veneration of feminine (Tonanzin) versus domination and hierarchy above feminine. Ometeotl, God and Goddess of duality, embodies oneness and interconnectedness, representing the interplay and balance between opposing forces, such as light and darkness, life and death, creation and destruction. This duality is seen as the driving force behind the cosmos. Ceremonies invoking and honoring Ometeotl aim to maintain harmony, seek guidance, express gratitude for the blessings of life. For example, during the Nahual Seven Directions Blessing, participants offer gratitude, prayers, and intentions for the specific energies associated with each direction. Ollin (East) invoques clarity and insight; Cuauhtli (West), guidance through life's changes and personal growth; Coatl (South), is linked to the element of fire and represents passion, creativity, and the vitality of life; Cipactli (North), represents stability, wisdom, and abundance; North invokes for grounding, strength, and prosperity; Ihuan Ahuitzotl (Heaven), represents the spiritual realm and the connection to the divine; Tlaltecuhtli (Earth), symbolizes the physical world and the nurturing energy of Mother Earth. Finally, Tonalli (Human Hearth) represents the inner world, emotions, and the sacred center of the individual.
