Works like the last projects, where the author collects footage items, outtakes and unused material that is kept under the Creative Commons license for future productions, is edited with a clear desire to recycle files that have been thrown into the net, however, Bayona adds in his works a new sense of irony, like in his work Cosmonaut, breaking with the established patterns and satirizing as well the actual digital media.

201700:03:19Video Art
The gas station, next to disappear or transform, as we have known so far, with its associated components, gasoline as stimulus, the car as an extension of the body and travel, as pleasure flight, along with the scene element The birds over it, causing chaos. All of that, is seasoned with a dose of humor to complement the information.
