His projects has been exhibited at the Ars Electronica festival in Austria, the Media Architecture biennale in Denmark and the Media Architecture summit in Beijing. In Vienna he participated in the design and installation of a media facade for the display of video art and interactive installations.
His doctoral thesis focuses on decentralized models of creativity and tools for collaborative creation. His master thesis focused on art in public spaces and the participation of communities in the development of their environments.
