Antonio R. Montesinos (Antonio R. Montesinos)

"The spaces in which we now live."

Antonio R. Montesinos works from the analysis, modification and recording of the spaces which are building our everyday experience. With this analysis he try to understand how this common experiences happens in a hybrid environment, in a mixture of the real and the fictional, the urban and the natural and the physical with the digital.

Especially interested in the different ways of understanding the production of these spaces where we live, he pays and special attention to the confrontation between different models of political-social emergency (Bottom-Up) and hierarchical control structures (Top-Down). His proposals aim to analyze the tension between management structures and regulation of space in front of the live-action capacity we have on our environment through everyday actions such as communication or displacement.

His work uses different media including drawing, photography, found objects, installation and digital media. These media sum inherited methods of sociology, anthropology and design of information: files, diagrams, models, computer graphics, mapping, fieldwork, surveys and workshops. The use of poor materials, Lo-Fi technology always close to “Do it yourself”
