Alfabet jeràrquic (consonants), 1994

Hierarchical Alphabet, 1994
Installation, 320 x 320 x 10 cm

I believe the poet today must broaden his field, get out of books and put himself forward with all the means provided by society itself and which he can use as unusual vehicles, infusing them with an ethical content which society does not confer on them. That is the starting point of the experiments in visual poetry which, in my opinion, has become the experimental poetry of our time. The search for a new ground between the visual and the semantic.

Joan Brossa, 1987

While there are ideas about psychological and emotional developmental processes held within the sculptures I make, the things themselves are actual physical explorations into thinking, feeling, communicating and relating.
