Davide is an artist and researcher, based in London. He investigates topics that transcend the temporality and the space of our human experience and uses his practice as a tool for questioning our too-human-centric culture. His recent work focuses on the concept of an outside – with the aim of questioning the Western dualism between human and nature. He holds a BA in New Technologies of Arts from the Academy of Fine Arts in Milan, Italy, and a MA in Material Futures from the Central Saint Martins in London, United Kingdom.


He defines his approach as antidisciplinary.
