“Italian by birth, but living across Italy, United States, England, Brazil and wherever work and interests take me, I have always had a fetish on art and technology.
Starting out in the european hacking and software pirating scenes of the late ’80s, I organized rave parties throughout the ’90s, promoting events such as a nomad industrial orchestra.
I started creating software art in the late ’90s, working first on ascii/ansi art, then on specific art projects based on the internet, on computer networks and artificial intelligence and genetic algorythms.
In 2004 I produced an electronic art festival in Rome: the 12 weekly sessions hosted the best part of Italy’s electronic art panorama, showing what in Rome was perceived, at the time, only as “that strange electronic stuff”.
I am now working on projects based on the “not_human” concept.”
