Installed at the 2019 Florence Biennale, the group of digital art takes shape in the form of a vibrant installation, combining the textural brushstrokes of painting and new media. The works abstractly express the various elements of our homeland, the earth, completely immersing the audience within a flow of light and color. The installation invites viewer participation, empowering the audience to interact with the music and imagery displayed on the screen, creating a visual impact that is experiential, performative, and collaborative.

I wanted to create a work that was visceral, a flow of light, and organic form. My intention was to deploy physical painting techniques translated into a digital and experiential form.
