Science fiction has had a tremendous impact on our imagination and thinking about technological advances: illusions, hopes, dreams, fears and fantasies.

For this series of works, I took scenes of daily life in my city (Bogotá, Colombia) and overlaid additional scenes from science fiction movies, TV, and pulp fiction that had had an emotional impact on me. In the past I felt that technological advances were very distant and unattainable. Also, the latest technologies always took months, and sometimes even years, to reach my country. In each painting, the familiarity of the places where these technological images occur creates for me the feeling of closeness. It allows me to believe that we, as individuals, now have access to the greatest technological and computational power in history. Many of the advances that I had dreamed in the past, are today within my reach ... and I continue dreaming.
