About the Artist
Hector Carmona Miranda was born in Mexico City, Mexico, and was encouraged to pursue the arts from a young age. He moved to El Paso in 2009, and later moved to Austin in 2011. After spending a decade working as a designer and three-dimensional modeler, he graduated with his Bachelor of Fine Arts in photography from the University of Texas at Austin. His work explores how traditional materials, such as metal, fit together to form new three-dimensional shapes. Coming from a long line of metal workers and metallurgists prompted Miranda to experiment with blacksmithing in combination with three-dimensional printing. After he finishes a piece, he uses light and a camera to enhance the different patterns and footprints that each of the materials and techniques produce, with the final product being the photographic image.
