Juan Manuel Escalante


I am an artist working with sound, electronics, drawings, and computer code.

In 2009, I became a lecturer in the Master and PhD Program in Architecture at Mexico's oldest university (UNAM), where I founded its first Media Lab. My work from that period used heavily computer code for live performance, installations, 2D/3D prints and other screen-based work. A selection of that period can be found in my old studio website:

In 2014, I moved to California (USA) to pursue my PhD studies in Media Arts and Technology at UCSB. Here, I started to continue my explorations with electronic sounds and analog drawings more seriously. Some of the work from these last four years can be found here:
