Cristina Garriga (Barcelona, 1986) trained both as an architect and as an artist. Her practice aims to expand the conventions of art, architecture, literature and technology, with an interest in their capacities to envision alternate ways of being and inhabiting the world. Mainly working as My Bookcase, her work often takes shape in events, exhibitions and online projects that question the dynamics of social encounters in today’s society.
