3D Motion Design by Maria Paz
Virtual Vacuum is Maria Paz’s 3D motion studio and digital playground.
For many years I have had a consistent practice as an artist (known as Exotikdot) and designer, through a hybrid wide lens; I have deepened not only within the audiovisual but also in other fields such as immersive installation, micro-optics, sculpture, light, and sound. France, Belgium, Colombia, Denmark, Sweden and Spain are countries where I have lived and worked, making adaptability and fast learning some of my biggest strengths.
Passionate about representing sensations, I aim for my 3D motion designs to become a medium for emotional connections between brands and their clients. I can help by offering eye-catching, refined, and playful motion design that captivates attention, in order to stand out with style.
When I am not at the studio, I am either being a mom, practicing yoga, playing with my synths, or trying out new food in sunny Barcelona, where I am actually based, while working anywhere in the world.
Drop me a line at email@example.com, I would love to help!

"We were conditioned by Louis Vuitton the travelling sculpture for the launch of their new Fragrance “Coeur Battant”. It was an immense challenge as it needed to travel to many cities with very different technical specifications: Naples, Paris, London, New York and Shanghai. We hired Maria to develop the internal luminaire of the sculpture, the beating heart of it all. The reason we hired her is for her incredible creativity and her domaine in the tech world in order to fulfill all the briefings, the creative and the technical one. Maria´s work was sharp, precise and impeachable. The campaign was a success."
