Through the use of wit and humor, Damián Ortega deconstructs familiar objects and processes altering their functions and transforming them into novel experiences and scenarios. Ortega’s work plays with a scale that ranges from the molecular to the cosmic, applying the concepts of physics to human interactions where chaos, accidents, and instability produce a system of relations in flux.
