"I came to Goldsmiths from Mexico looking for the time and space to reflect upon my artistic and educational practice. I found in the MAAT the theoretical foundation, creative expansion and a strong community of friends and practitioners that supported my work throughout the programme. The whole course was an evolution process; hard and demanding, but also a very fulfilling. The way the MA is conducted helped me to become more independent in my thinking and research. Reflection was constantly encouraged, as was the breaking of pre-conceptions, which allowed us to find a deeper meaning and purpose in the things we were doing. All these resulted in a renewed confidence, authenticity and passion in my work.

Currently I am developing an international project in collaboration with people working in India, Mexico and the UK. The project attempts to develop a fashion label that reflects and acts upon issues of sustainability in the areas of education, design and urban mobility as it challenges the economic model in which the fashion industry is immersed. As an Artist Researcher Teacher, I look into the narratives carried by the body, where clothing acts as its extension. Relying on an arts-based research, the project explores how body movement can challenge patterns of behaviour to reorganize social dynamics into more sustainable orders."
