He carried out different activities around finding other ways of communication and the link between the public and science. The idea started from communicating science not from the phenomenon, but from the controversy and therefore criticism. Thus, the experimentation started from shaping and materializing speculative discourses on the possible scenarios to which these matters of scientific controversy (eg genetically modified organisms) led to function as suggestive statements and, from which, not only the discussion is incited, but also the creative provocation in the public by its own speculative composition on this matter. In this way, the discourse with which communication begins is refreshed in each new discursive creation of the public and, from this provocative interaction, perhaps the forms of connection to science can be expanded by interfering with the cultural, social and political sphere.
