HUMAN BIG DATA ––– 2020 

Reflection on the immense amount of personal data exposed on the digital network by making an ironic parallelism: extrapolate big data online to what has been named big data offline, which is all the information that for centuries the human being has sent and received with the purpose of adapting himself to the environment he lives on.

Contents
    (1) Biomety
    (2) Ubication
    (3) Social network
    (4) Chat
    (5) Influence

Big data is a powerful tool that is here to stay. We must understand it, be aware of the great political-social weight that it has and educate ourselves to coexist in its presence.

A CABIN ––– 2020

‘A Cabin’ address climate change to a new perspective: reconciling with nature. Reconnecting with something we lost when we abandoned a more primal way of living and environment.

Based on the experience of living in a cabin for seven days, the feelings and perceptions of two people in the same space haven been documented. The project explores how individuals face the climate change problem in their daily lives, and if this new approach could be the path to follow by our society.

Contents
    (1) Introduction
    (2) Sounds
    (3) Loneliness
    (4) Exploration
    (5) Conclussion
