Julia lives and works in Mexico City. Her artistic practice examines the conditions of perception within different spaces and fosters immersion situations that invite the intimacy of discovery. Her interests are linked to the transformation of space through natural phenomena such as the movements of light, the travel of sound and the dynamics of fluid forces. She develops projects that lead her to build abstract and metaphorical scenarios marked by interior-exterior, natural-built, reality-representation dualities. In these projects she explores how the passage of time, the random, the rhythms of nature and individual experiences establish the guidelines for the creation of interior landscapes.
