A Spaniard turned Melbournian, Javier builds objects to give interesting behaviour to public artworks and theatrical props, writes software to help people and companies automate their daily work, and teaches first year students at Monash University how to do all of the above.

He also runs barrapunto.com, the Spanish language website on open source technology and civil rights in the digital realm.

Javier is working alongside Natalie Jeremijenko and Carbon Arts on Mussel Choir, Jeremijenko’s bio-sensing public art work that turns mussel behaviour into song and sound. He is working alongside us to deliver, Sensing Sydney: communicating sustainability through art, open data and public space.
