Alessandra Leone - live visuals, motion design, animation and direction.
Born 1983, from Milan, IT.
The only way of discovering the limits of the Possible and of the Thinkable is to venture a little way past them into the impossible and the UnThinkable.
As a trained (motion) graphics designer and self taught programmer, highly fascinated by perception, consciousness and reality, she tries to make her work visually attractive and challenging. Enjoys collaborating on audio-visual projects, and as such has performed at a range of live events, like Geneva Mapping Festival and B-Seite - festival für visuelle Kunst und Jetztkultur in Mannheim , exploring new solutions for experimental mapping installations and immersive environments.
In 2010 founded de*centralized, a collective for creating state-of-the-art digital imagery for feature films, television, video activism and interactive visual media, that involves different creative talents with multi-disciplinary skills that enable them to take and manage projects from concept to completion, using whatever approach works best for the story being told, and according to a not-hierarchical ( i.e. decentralized ) tasks handling.
Is now freelancing in Berlin and Milan, collaborating with different studios as motion graphics animator and editor, as well as carrying on with her personal projects, in the form of a wider co-action with independent media as a reaction to the lack of critical, unbiased coverage in the mainstream media .
With a strong eye for detail and a passion for creating interesting interactive experiences and motion graphics sequences, works now at generative coded pieces, elaborated with Processing and Quartz Composer, reacting to the music in live.
The recent collaboration with Audition Records ( auditionrecords.com ) - independent label for experimental, noise and improvised music - for the Radical Animation and Musik project, brought to the conception of a new a/v project, based on an extract of the Live in Prague, 07.11.05 by Emiter & Arszyn, that sees particles reacting structures evolving and taking life in this 10 minutes long composition.
Removed from the healthy expectations of mediocre logic, and yet firmly rooted in its own separate logic.
