    Biochromatic is a collaborative project with Essentials Creative which exhibited at the Instituto Cultural de Mexico in San Antonio, Texas in November 2017. 

    Biochromatic examines the limitations and exploitations of human perception. Photography, print, projection, and installation are utilized to explore uncommon arrangements of light, such as those found in the fringes of the natural world or on the edges of the human visible spectrum. These media are combined to reproduce the sensations one cannot directly experience, just as observational instruments require translation to explain such phenomena. 

    In a second sense, Essentials subverts the pastoral narrative of natural discovery by presupposing the entrance of mass media. The eye is able to absorb an almost constant onslaught of information; but for all its abilities, modern media technology devalues and erodes this task of prehistoric survival. Advertorial predation on the sublime, and the relentless hypermedia that follows, is used to confront the resting state of perception. ​​​​​​​
