Biography
I am an artist and creative researcher from Turin, Italy, working on unconventional and multi-disciplinary projects at the intersection of art, technology and culture. I am one of the pioneers of Nano art (nano metric artworks invisible to human eyes, created with nanotechnology), and I am also the creator of OKKULT Motion Pictures (Art, Education & Entertainment through Animated GIFs) and The Horoscope (the world first Analog GIF Player). Since 2016, under the pseudonym of Alexander Van Glitch, I am working on the fusion of classical and contemporary aesthetics to reveal the uncomfortable beauty of human life.

Nature in itself might be perfect, but human life is far from perfection. And as machines become more and more efficient and perfect, it become clear that imperfection is the greatness of human life.

In my work I try to reflect the uncomfortable, imperfect, distorted beauty of human life through the use of our most recent and advanced technologies and through a constant dialogue between contemporary aesthetics (the use of multiple kinds of glitch) and a more traditional/classical artistic language (the reference to XVII and XVIII century paintings).
