I am a communication designer and interdisciplinary artist working at the intersection of technology, design and philosophy. In my recent production I analyse and alter present digital ecosystems to set aesthetic and critical narratives that occur between reality and fiction. After years of questioning current visual cultures and their social impact, I am developing my own artistic practice to understand the politics of the contemporary digital image.

A choose-your-own-adventure collectively interactive story lived by the audience (+700k people participating live on Facebook) through a girl's smartphone. Her social media activity reveals mistreatment in her relationship, confronting the audience into the relevance of decision-making and influences at a young age. We adapted the script to nowadays teen's vocabulary, and we designed everything with the default tools given by the main social media platforms.


‘I Block You’ ended up being shown at schools, to open a debate about privacy and the effects of an uncritical use of social media in our lives and relationships.
