My art project thematic is the representation and understanding of space through digital technologies of the image. Until now, my practice invested computer graphic animations, interactive installations, experimental softwares development, multiuser online environments and art experiments on mobile devices. As a researcher, I produced a study about mobile displays and their use in contemporary art (practice based PhD). It was the beginning of Mobilizing, a programming language for artists and designers. I'm currently investigating the hypothesis of an operating graphic design, mixing historical and theoretical research about visual programming (HIC and graphic design) and the relationship it can have with linguistic (natural language processing), visual languages (history of writing) and formal languages (programming). This activity mixes experimental art work and theoretical writings.
