The author comments regarding his work: "What I intend to generate in the spectator is the survival instinct. Even though the piece is aggressive and will attack you, then -at that moment- you have to awaken that instinct to keep your distance, outwit it or attack it. It's like when you go out into the street, you have to go with sharp claws. That's how I generate creative solutions so that people are complicit with the piece".
