"Javier Infantes understands creation as a language of experimentation, as a method of investigation and acquisition of knowledge and not a mere representation of what surrounds us, all of this based on the freedom to create.
He is interested in traveling somehow, towards our inner selves, towards what we are: thought, emotion, feeling, memory.
Moreover, he is attracted by our ability to generate intelligence, sensations, recollections.
" 'Recollections make us who we are. Perhaps, we are what we remember,' he says.
