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 founder and lead curator of art project series Project Glocal (2011-2015) and Composite Noises Series (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).
