Moises Mañas is an artist as well as professor at the School of Fine Arts, University of Valencia. We met because of common interests and have worked together a couple of times. Currently we prepare a workshop we will be hosting together in San Sebastian in the summer 2009.

His personal art career has drifted away from painting to media arts and it is starting to flourish now. Stock is his latest piece as presented by the Gallery Rosa Santos (Valencia, Spain) at ARCO -the yearly art fair in Madrid, one of the biggest in the world.

Stock represents physically the status of the stock-market via moving three overalls up an down using solenoids. The technical explanation to his piece can be seen here, it is in Spanish, but I think the pictures talk by themselves.

You can find about Moises at his gallerist, but also at the Laboratorio de Luz’s website, the department of new media at Valencia’s university.
