His last projects have been exhibit at MUSAC, León (No man’s Land: Mneme); La casa encendida, Madrid (Sidelito); the old Born Market, Barcelona (litofagos: ærolito) at Gilverto Alzate Foundation, Bogotá (Fosfofagia 04); Cervantes Institute, New York (Documentation of 19 days living in a cave); or Khoj, India (Fosfofagia 03).

The two Spanish artists came together and met with scientist such as senior physicist and expert in antimatter Michael Dosser, theoretical physicist Luis Alvarez-Gaumé, as well as visiting experiments like the LHCb and AMS-02.
