“The Support of the Cube” piece is a conceptual work that explores the relationship between human emotions and human progress. The piece intends to inspire people to approach the present global challenges with flexible solutions, which I passionately perceive as the next step in human development. The sculpture combines five major elements: one 4’x4’x4’ Cube manufactured entirely of ultra polished sheet metal, and four organic shaped metal legs.
The Art work was going to be exhibited at the largest Art competition in the USA, Artprize 7. Logistically and by the nature of the Sculpture was convenient to produce it in the USA. The Sculpture was built at a race car building company Ignite Performance. The build team is used to work with high standards and high tolerances, elements necessary to ensure no errors on such a minimalist piece.
As an Artist I contacted ignite Performance director Greg Jacobs. We talk about the project requirements. We maintained communication via telephone and email for month, since I was at the time in Guatemala City. I flew to Denver once they had all the parts Cut and pre-sized. Once in Denver I worked side by side with all the building team to create the Piece. Greg Jacobs was in charge of production so I was under his command. Yet I was in Charge of leading the Aesthetic so we were in a continuous stop and see until the end result fit it my expectations.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
