Oscillating between artist, academic teacher and researcher, my practice takes a multidisciplinary approach. Investigating the contemporary and historical issues surrounding art and science, by embracing the spectrum of inquiry, interaction, and creative endeavour.
Fascinated by the ubiquity of technology and the digital image in contrast to traditional crafts, I work predominantly with photography, thread/textiles and mixed media installations. Exploring the strong relationship between photographs and memory and thread as a spatial poetry timeline.
Growing up in Milan, Honolulu and London; never really feeling British in London, nor Italian when in Italy, has led me to be fascinated by the multifaceted concept of identity and is a prominent theme in my research and practice. Despite the vast and increasing interest in identity across a broad spectrum of disciplines, the concept itself remains somewhat elusive. It proves difficult to review all the research on the subject and give a short and adequate summary of its meaning. Supported by research, my practice aims to experiment with ways in which these abstract concepts are translated in to more tangible forms of creative expression.
