MA in semiotic of Cinema at Pisa University, he works as an autonomous artist. His research as videomaker consists in a minimal and epigrammatic experimental re-use of audio visual found objects.

Interested in a critical ‚detournement‘ of rough materials from the „mediascape“ he focuses his attention on ordinary anonymous images as well as on fragments from cinematographic history. His work of de-construction of narrative devices, and re contextualization of visual elements, aims to disorient and estrange the viewer playing a game between memory and formation of new meanings.
