Recording breaths on a limestone's memory, growing crystals from saliva or capturing rainfall by using asphalt. Inés' work examines ideas central to the fields of identity, memory and ecology exploring life through materials that are static, at times inert, or seemingly ephemeral.

Inés' work is informed conceptually by notions of ‘thinking-with’, ’sensory attentiveness to non- human forces’ and ‘uncanny dark ecology’. Inés combines a critical research practice with scientific rigour and a highly experimental making process. The role of metaphors and poetry is central to her work and allows for sensorial ways of engaging with scientific research beyond the factual. This has led her to collaborate with a range of experts (chemists, physicists, crystallographers, biologists and botanists), in a variety of environments and across multiple scales.

Inés has exhibited internationally and nationally and has worked with institutions like: King's College London, Drugo More, Abandon Normal Devices, MU Artspace, Science Gallery London and the Museum of Contemporary Art of León in Spain, MUSAC. From 2016-2019 Inés was in residence at Somerset House Studios.
