«always on the swaying scales of balance»
R. M. Rilke

My works combine sound and visual arts with a thorough conceptual research and are defined by a transversal method and an essential aesthetic. The creative impulse comes as a reaction to the huge amount of data surrounding us. I subtract, isolate and rework the preexisting matter in search of a new semantic system. I try to stimulate the observer’s engagement by subtly altering their perception. The silence, acoustic resonance and imperceptible sound variations in space and matter are the core of my sonic practice. I focus on fragments and marginal elements of architecture, recording the simple geometry of light, away from preset information and superstructures. I investigate the relationship between space and perception through photography, sculpture and sound.
