About the series 'Indoors Gardens':

"What would a forest immortalized in metal look like?"


"These gardens renew the concept of ecology by immortalizing the native vegetation of
the forests of southern Chile. They contrast the vegetal contemplation and southern melancholy with the hardness and metallic shine, offering a hypnotic, elegant and

alive work."
