Updated: Feb 9

Hardcover Format with illustrations in full color.



A collaborative literary project


Artificium is a multidimensional artifact that travels through speculative, weird, and experimental Sci-Fi worlds. The stories compiled in this book were forged within the science fiction narrative workshops led by Venezuelan Author José Urriola.


The prologue, by Luis Miguel Isava, contextualizes the book's proposal in the current literary landscape. In his reflections, Isava inquires about what it means to be a human of our time and challenges us to imagine what is to come for the genre.


I collaborated on this project as the author of a triptych exploring hybrid consciousness and contributed to the overall project by offering a visual essay on the controversial human-machine creative convergence. Each story is accompanied by illustrations I made in hybridization with an A.I. model, an experiment that led me to deepen the questions about the role of language and language models in the quest for amplifying our cognitive condition.


I am truly honored to be part of the group of authors who came together to make this project possible. It has been an extraordinary journey to speculate on our humanity together. My deepest thanks to José Urriola for inviting me to design this fascinating book and to the brilliant group of authors for trusting me with their writings.
