A story of personal perception

I believe in creating a sense of oneness between people and objects.

In exploring the idea that life exists within matter and that we, as humans, can connect to the world that surrounds us, captivating and experimenting with its energy through our eyes.

As a contemporary artist and designer, I conceive transformative projects and sense-driven instruments to be lived and worn. I seek inspiration from the fundamentals of quantum physics, nature’s essence, and multi sensoriality, enhancing the process of perception to evolve one’s inner and outer vision.

My research and aesthetic language are shaped by innovative technologies, renewable and sustainable materials, and expressed through various mediums, such as sculpture, installations, interior design artifacts, and photography.

I live, think, and create between Milan and Paris, collaborating as a designer for Louis Vuitton Eyewear while developing a personal project at the intersection of art and design: the sculpture-like tools I create intend to function as metaphors, reminding us that we are all energetically interconnected as one.
