I am searching for the expansion of the human senses
I intend to artistically elaborate an “affective” situation where people expand their senses through the interaction with the sculptures by creating new shapes, relationships and experiences between the people, the subjects chosen and the technological material we have available in the market.

I am searching for the expansion of the human senses by building sculptural interfaces that interconnect the physical with the digital using concepts of psychology, cognitive science and dreams providing behaviours, feelings and imagination for the sculptures and installations.
As an artist, I want to communicate and be closer to people. I am interested in reaching out for situations that escape from our control, new means of perceiving and expanding our reality via artistic experimentation with technological new materials. Rethinking the role of art in our contemporary technological society means expanding the subjects we are daily confronted with and the spaces we inhabit, in order to expand and enrich our lives with an added aesthetic and creative dimension. I am interested in the realm of the collective, beyond the private dimension of art and enhancing the channel of communication with people: this is why I am particularly fascinated by the power of interactive art and public art.
