Juan Manuel Escalante

After seven years of studying architecture and graduating with honours in both college and master programs, Juan Manuel decided finally to dedicate his life to the arts and design.

In his late years he has been using code as a creative medium. However his roles range from: non-formal piano composer, exhibition curator, publisher/author/editor, designer, teacher, writer, bio and sound artist.

Throughout Realität (founded in 1998); his work has been shown in the US, France, the United Kingdom, Spain, Mexico and also featured in many festivals including OFFF (Barcelona and Mexico), Mutek, Binario, Ceremonia, amongst others. He has been awarded twice with the “Young Creators” grant by the National Fund for the Arts (2010 and 2013), the first prize for two consecutive years for “Best multimedia art application of the year” by the AMU (Universitary Scholars Multimedia Association) and a 1st prize Corwin Award for Electronic-Acoustic Music Composition (2016).

He is a former member of the Master and PhD program in Architecture (National Autonomous University of Mexico) where he taught and directed its Media Lab. He is currently doing research to achieve his PhD at the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB).
