Automated Haven is a creative retreat for artists going through a phase of self-discovery, rethinking their life and art.It becomes a place to re-charge and re-inspire artists far away from the pressures of daily life. This retreat is a celebration to the banal and primitivity of being surrounded by nature in a techno-social context. Embracing automation technologies to redefine domesticity and social intercourse. The project is layout with the juxtaposition of programs: Fruit collection / Art making / Automated Leisure.

Our capacity to connect with architecture and media has created an incrementing global notion of political, social and territorial issues. Understanding the human body as a mechanism with the ability to extend its capacity through other devices is only possible with networks and the use of prosthetics that have been present since primitive times in several scales, from simple inventions such as the wheel, lever, pulley, etc. —that have given the human-self a way to achieve physical, survival and shelter challenges— To other devices such as lighthouses, carrier pigeons and telegraph as territorial extensions to transmit a message. The Eupnea project is a conceptual exploration of a transformable device that activates when the user faces an environment with poor air quality. Each antenna is deployed with mist that covers the micro-atmosphere of the user to enhance the air quality around.

Studio Prompt: For Your Entertainment
Site: New York, New York
Critic:Pedro & Juana ( Ana Paula Ruiz Galindo & Mecky Reuss )

TA: Peter Maxwell Martin
Partner: Rafaela Olivares

This project explores the possibility of architecture to absorb media to become a medium. The influence of human actions in a physical and digital way on and within a space to transform an obsolete architectural object into a prosthetic device that expands bodies beyond their own spatiality. Turning the night sky in a communicational spectacle. Entertainment becomes the
force to enable an interconnected network of media, artifacts and social interaction.
