In the context of the investigations he once took up on the way the experience of "inhabiting" defines our perception of space and time, his work addresses architectural elements associated to power structures in order to search for new means to understand social relations. 
Through the use of metaphor and by means of specific interventions in given spaces, his intention is to break and then restore the three elements his work is comprised of: the city, subjectivity and power.
The idea of "break" is essential in his practice. It allows him to link the objectivity of outter space to individual perception. In many cases, this transition occurs through language, which is systematically subverted and reassembled to produce new meanings. This idea is echoed in the collages, a practice that emphazises the complex and ambiguous bridge between text and image. Within this fractures lies the tension between the private and the public and the reassesment of social space.
