Giulia Principe - Visual Artist

My work explores the relationship between analog and digital art and how to limit the environmental impact of creative media techniques.

I was born in Naples in 1992. Since I was 4 years old, I have struggled with sleep disorders, nightmares, and sleep-walking. My mind is hyperactive, and my vivid memory feeds my dreams at night and influences how I feel during the day. Drawing brought me relief from a young age, however, it was not enough to fulfill my need of self-expression.

This got me to experiment with photography, filmmaking, interactive graphics, and creative coding.

As a mixed media artist, I combine analog and digital media into my work. Working freelance allows me to extend my knowledge to more technical fields and discover new tools I can use for artistic expression.

Current and future projects involve AI and VR.

My work explores the forms and identity of natural bodies, terrestrial and extra-terrestrial, mainly focusing on water and particles. Elements that are part of human beings as they are of our surroundings. The wonder phenomenon of surface tension in water and the universe.

Additionally, the connection with nature pushes me to find sustainable alternatives to the techniques usually involved with installation art and production.

Co-founded xposed lab in 2020 - artist studio collective for photographic research development and audio-visual installation experiment.

Currently developing research at Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam. The main focus of the research revolves around finding a sustainable yet functional alternative to photographic chemicals.
