By re-coding physical structures, Jerónimo Reyes-Retana practice reinvents the use of preconceived systems to propose a space for alternative codifications supported by synthetic environments of multiple associations. As an artist working in the field of sound installation, Reyes-Retana employs both analog and digital technology to create art objects that expose omnipresence as a mechanism to reconfigure meaning. He was recently invited by OMR Gallery (Mexico City) as their featured artist for Salón ACME (2019). His work has been shown in Mutek (International Festival of Digital Creativity, Mexico City), Paul Kazmin (New York), and Efraín López (Chicago). Reyes-Retana currently lives and works in Texas.
