Tláhuac Mata investigates and reflects on the empty urban spaces and their relation with biological and political processes. His work addresses the problem on the contemporary landscape, emphasizing the quasi-documentary role of the representation of the environment and its historical dimension. He uses digital and virtual mediums as well as drawing, painting and sculpture.

His work has been exhibited in international institutions and galleries such as Benetton Foundation in Venice, Italy; the Antiguo Colegio Jesuita in Michoacán, Mexico; Cuarto de Máquinas, Casa del Lago, Experimental Museum El Eco, Universidad Iberoamericana, La Quiñonera and MUCA Roma, in Mexico City.
