(b.1976, Manila, Philippines)

The focus of my practice is process as media (archival and laboratory), technology as media (analogue, digital, mechanical, electronic), and senses as media; with research on ecology of art practices (art residencies,  sound practice communities), and sounding and listening.

I am an Associate Professor at the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts and College of Music. I am founder and lead curator of art project series Project Glocal (2011-2015) and Composite Noises (2015-2020). I also curated the Jose Maceda Exhibit Series (2013, 2017a, 2017b and  2018). I served as Archivist and Collections Manager of the University of the Philippines Center for Ethnomusicology (2007-2015).

I was a recipient of Hong Kong Postgraduate Fellowship Scheme (2015-2016, 2018-2020),  Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards (2014), Japan Foundation Grants (2012, 2014 and 2015), Asian Cultural Council Grant (2012), Singapore International Foundation Grants (2010 and 2012), and Goethe Institut Grants (2020 and 2021), among others. I am at present a Research Fellow at the Centre for Cultural Research and Development of Lingnan University Hong Kong.
