He has collaborated with several artists, scientists, engineers, institutions and collectives with who he has developed pioneering platforms on electronic art such as Galeria Virtual (1993-2000), focused on the development of virtual reality within the art world; MACBA En Línea (1995-1997) focused on online art; M.A.L. (2011-2013) focused on art projects developed using locative media or the Master of Digital Arts, UPF (1995-2015), who co-directed from 2010 to 2015. His commitment to interdisciplinary culture (which he personally defends because of its anti-dogma potential and its civilised force), has led him toward the intersection among art, science, technology, critical thinking and society.
