Architect and artist, David Scognamiglio studied at Università degli studi di Firenze, in Italy.
The work of Scognamiglio is defined by the creation of symbolic space and experiences through light, taking away the relationship generally attributed to progress and technology and emphasizing its elementary and mystical character. Thus, the light functions like a compositional element that conditions the space.
The work is therefore centered around the materials as a narrative object and the space as an emotional place. Through the artist’s installations, the viewer becomes a participant in the work.
Most of his works are installations, light sculptures and photography.
