Biography

Hi! I’m Albe, a visual artist specializing in video making and graphic design.

a self portrait
trying to make the best of digital noise
I studied fine arts and philosophy in Florence, film and media in Bologna. I worked in Amsterdam, where I acquired experience about new media art, graphic design and video editing.

In my artistic work I make use of mixed media – especially mass electronic technologies – in a a way often incongruous to their ordinary purpose, aiming to combine the irrational aspect of science with the rational aspect of art.
