LIVES AND WORKS
Marco Fiume is a young Italian designer and artist interested in the progressive multidisciplinary fusion of new technologies with biological sciences.
Gifted with a strong sensitivity towards the environment and natural mechanisms, he studied Figurative Arts and then graduated in Design and Communication at the University of Campania “Luigi Vanvitelli”, where he continued his Master’s Degree courses in Design for Innovation.
Among the research topics investigated, it focuses on transdisciplinary studies concerning the creative possibilities offered by the fusion of bioart with biodesign and digital fabrication on processes aimed at sustainability and the recovery of materials such as those of urban and industrial waste, combining art with biomimetic design and biological sciences.
His training, which took place between the world of art and that of design, allowed him to deepen and diametrically compare to an inner artistic dimension, certain aspects of traditional sculpture and digital manufacturing implemented by 3D printers with the aid of sculpture software and fast modeling. The predisposition to animate the material of emotional narratives that are embodied as a spokesperson for social complaints and environmental leads him into a continuous aesthetic and speculative research based on the material and symbolic data of everyday life, in which the analysis of the sculptural potential, of interaction and emulation with artificial and living matter, testing the fragility and resilience from time to time of such relationships.
The orientation towards a two-way creation of internal and external links between different species and elements, turns to a position of mutual equality between person, environment and biological or artificial matter in terms of who or what has the power and the right to make design decisions and who or what can control the process and the resulting outcome.
The artifacts translated by this thinking approach are animated by a latent tension poised between art, design, technology and nature, the resulting hybridizations of which are characterized by a convergence of different genetic codes and internal and external dialectical forces - opening the way to new investigation of scenarios in which the action of life and the principles of nature are tangibly present in the global dialogue as a first step in the direction of a more understood and balanced future.
