Félix Lazo

February 23 - March 17, 2012

Curated by María J. Montalva


In his work, Félix Lazo investigates problems of perception and cognition, namely how we connect to what our senses receive and how we find meaning within this information. Can one create an experience deep enough to transform our neuronal conditioning and present reality anew?


m:n:m::l is an interactive visual and audible installation. The visual systems are made up of two parts: origami boxes made of synthetic paper and placed within a grid as well as a digital projection that interacts with them. Interactive programs specifically created for the installation run the two visual systems, which are further modified by the environment’s sound movements.
