Davide is an artist and researcher, based in London. He is interested in topics that transcend the temporality and the space of human experience and the consequent “accidents” that come from this friction. His recent work investigates the resulting aesthetics from the practice of place-making and virtual materiality through computational design – with the aim of questioning the Western dichotomy between human culture and nature.
He holds a BA in New Media from the Academy of Fine Arts in Milan and a MA in Material Futures from the Central Saint Martins in London.
Currently, Davide is a researcher at Forensic Architecture, Goldsmiths – University of London, and an external mentor at MA Material Futures, Central Saint Martins – UAL.
He defines his approach as antidisciplinary.
