Engineer and interdisciplinary artist who combines his interest in evolution and the development of life on earth with his interest in the evolution and development of human technology. In his work he explores the role of the amateur scientist, integrating art and design methodologies and processes in order to bring poetic and alternative pathways that may challenge prevailing scientific and technological directions. In 2005 Tamayo initiated v*i*d*a lab, an experimental workshop for industrial design students at Javeriana Pontifical University in Bogotá (Colombia), which explored the conception of new objects for everyday life, taking as a point of departure interdisciplinary approaches to the phenomenon of life.
