How did you start with film? And do you have an educational background in art or film?
Since 1990 I have created art works, performances, poems and videos. I attended the ‘Laboratorio Delle Arti Sceniche’ established by the National Academy of Dramatic Art ’Silvio D’Amico’ and the Teatro Stabile d’Abruzzo.


Could you explain how you work, what themes or concepts you use and what is important to you?
I work with video, performance, installation and photography. The main themes used are: decadence, loss, narcissism, suicide, pain, rain and decline.


How long do you usually work on one project?
From one day to ten years.


Do you carefully plan the production process or do you work more intuitive?
Both.


Where do you get your ideas or inspiration from?
Life and Art.


How important is sound in film, and if you use sounds, do you create your own or use existing?
I compose the music of my videos.


How does content relate to the form of your work?
I work in the deconstruction of form.


Did the web changed your view on art, or your career?
I am a visionary.


Where would you place your work; cinema or art. And what is the difference between those according to you?
My cinema is anticinema and experimental cinema.


How influential is the reaction to your film by the audience?
None.


What is your next project about?
I just finished ’Narciso Gray’, this video is a meeting between the myth of Narcissus and Dorian Gray.
