Astral is an anarchic video-dictionary, many words have been written since I made it although if I should say how conscious I was when this dvd was made... the answer would probably be not printed on paper rather thab doing a new video.

I was born in Zaragoza (Spain) in 1977, getting my Bachelor with Honours in Arts by the UCLM (Castilla-La Mancha University), the UCLM are, mostly, the guys that were performing the "movida" from Madrid and then became university teachers. After that (with a year between in Czech) I moved to Barcelona to get my Master in Digital Arts by the University Pompeu i Fabra and then to Germany (where I live). Until today I´ve been making exhibitions in Spain, UK, Turkey, Poland, Czech, Germany inside others... while I study at the University of Ulster. Sounds messy, yes, but I swear this is what I really like. As I don´t remember grants and prizes due to my tiredness after the first screenings of today, I am very happy to say in petit comite that next year I´ll be summerged in Poland because the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs granted me to study how the Spanish culture is studied over there.
