About the speaker

Ricardo Mondragon is a Mexican artist and music composer born and raised in Mexico City (1984). Ricardo graduated with a Post-Baccalaureate of Arts in Music Composition at Columbia College Chicago.

Topics of his work include harmony, frequency, waveforms, vibrations, modulations, particles, color, and light. Ricardo’s work finds harmonies and materializes them, making the invisible, visible through sculptures, paintings, and installations.

Each work is an exact representation of harmonies, musical chords, intervals, and waveforms. When waves travel through space they create beautiful patterns that flow and resonate in our universe. With the help of different materials, these waveforms can take form and be perceived as a snapshot of time, unveiling new sensorial experiences that usually go unnoticed.

Ricardo currently resides in Chicago, Illinois.
