giosampietro, 70 x 100 cm
giosampietro’s vision emerges from new media and methods in a theoretical framework he calls hypercraft. The instrument he designed – his toolbox – is an extremely sophisticated combination of different elements: drawing, generative systems, game engines, the simulation of natural phenomena and the most advanced outcomes of special effect software.
Equipped with this machine, this set of devices, he began generating images that hold unprecedented configuration potential.
The fact is digital processing does not cancel the craftsmanship element of these images, which become metal objects through lost-wax casting. The process is, so to speak, an extension of making by hand, of the language of jewelry design: the outcome is hand-coded, which is even more handmade. The images incorporate the material quality of the object, the ring and its variations.
giosampietro is Giorgio Olivero, one of Italy’s first interaction designers. Under his mother’s maiden name, Sampietro, he is starting a new research journey as an accidental jeweler.
