I am a digital art director and interaction designer working between Barcelona and Rome.
In my practice I focus on creative use of technology, investigating how art and design can change the way we interact with each other and the world.
Since 2014 I work with brands and organisations to guide, create and translate ideas into digital products and services. Some of my most recent clients include: Gran Teatre del Liceu, Palau de la Música Catalana, Ajuntament de Barcelona, Centre LGTBI de Barcelona, Òmnium Cultural, Investigación y Ciencia, Laboratorios Leti.
Akyute is an interactive arts collective based in Barcelona I co-founded in 2019 with Natalia Gima and Mago Hart. In our practice we use technology as a means to reconnect the human experience with the natural world, integrating nature into the digital age, unifying interaction design, audiovisual arts and generative sound.
An ongoing investigation on plants intelligence that started with Akyute’s first installation at Mutek ES 2019 in Barcelona.
Mirror Mirror is a project which puts in evidence the intangible reflection of nature on us, using technology as a tool to requestion our future. The project consists in the development of a MIDI controller by the sonification of biodata to recreate an electronic musical instrument. Simultaneously there is a hidden webcam, capturing the reactions of the public and projecting it before them with time-distortion.
A large-format reactive audiovisual piece designed for BAU (Design College of Barcelona) as part of OFF Llum BCN 2020. The light sculpture suspended in the air evokes the industrial past of the BAU Headquarters Building. Emphasizing its previous use as a fabric storage warehouse, the light projected by two lasers generates a woven pattern reflecting upon the metal wires installed on the upper hall of the building.
An immersive experience that allows participants to “hack” their electromagnetic field. Through the physical interaction with a light sculpture, participants design a soundscape which they are able to modify in real-time. Creating a feedback loop of action and reaction between the physical and energetic body, the emitted frequencies provoke a state of deep relaxation.
