Davide Angheleddu graduated in Architecture from Milan Polytechnic in 2000. Since his first working experience, he has developed the concept of digital representation as a dynamic tool for the development of the ideational process. The idea of starting from an initial seed in search of an ideal form is the leitmotif of many of his works originated from digital models and exhibited in international contexts including Milan (2010), London (2011), New York (2012), Santiago de Compostela (2013) and Seoul (2014).
He currently combines artistic and scientific research, developing an innovative technique for encoding three-dimensional models, on which he is doing a PhD at Politecnico di Milano.

Otolab is a collective of multimedia artists founded in 2001 in Milan, who work on experimentation in the field of digital art and electronic music. At the heart of the collective’s research is an investigation into perception, in particular the themes of synesthesia and the symbiotic relationship between images and sound. The collective’s works explore the perceptual deception caused by optical illusions and the construction of immersive virtual realities.
According to the principles of the Otolab manifesto, similar to those of hacker and DIY ethics, the projects are developed through laboratory and workshop work based on mutual confrontation, support, free circulation of knowledge and experimentation. The collective produces audiovisual performances, sound recordings, audiovisuals, video installations, self-made instruments and hardware prototypes. Since 2005 Otolab has been teaching in universities and art academies including NABA, Politecnico di Milano, Istituto Europeo di Design, C.F.P. Bauer, Accademia di Brera and in self-produced workshops.
Since 2001, Zeitguised has been the strange, obscure twin of contemporary zeitgeist imagineering.

François Vogel is a Parisian director has been creating arresting visuals for the better part of a decade.
François Vogel’s crazy audiovisual inventions come from the experiments he has conducted with cameras and from his work in digital arts. He manipulates images and concepts, by twisting them like clay (“Cuisine”, “Tournis”, “Trois petits chats”), or by fragmenting them like crystal (“Rue Francis”, “Faux plafond”, “Les Crabes”).
Daniel Rossa is an art director who lives between Berlin and Bremen. His art originates from the need to work for an interdisciplinary experimentation and is the result of a solid perspective on the aesthetic perception in the arts .
The establishment of links between the digital world and the reality is a recurring theme in his installations, which make virtual reality and actual reality coexist in a sensory and physical fusion.
