Jessica Bizzoni

spatial designer, visual researcher

Jessica Bizzoni, b. 1990 ITA,  working between Belgium, The Netherlands and Italy.

 

SPATIAL DESIGNER + VISUAL RESEARCHER

Exploring storytelling in site-specific projects.

I investigate the built/natural environment and the use of public spaces that reflect on the contemporary behaviours of everyday life.

 

TALENT OF THE YEAR 2019 from the Independent Photographer. The project Electric Sun questions new rituals and uses of electric light. Part of the work has been exhibited during Equilibrio Sottile in Fotografica 2018; at the European Month Of Photography Berlin 2018, and SI Fest OFF Savignano, among others.

 

 

I graduated at the Design Academy of Eindhoven with Sound Zen Gardens, an environmental sound installation, and XXX Zone a Book and Manifesto about spatial practice. I hold an MA in Photography at the Royal Academy of Fine Art Antwerp.

With an interdisciplinary background in visual direction, sound practice and urban-spatial studies, I work as a consultant, concept maker and creative thinker. I assisted Studio Zimoun (CH), The Metropolitan Art Centre (UK) and  STRP Festival (NL). I worked as Art Director on innovative kinetic concepts and immersive retail projects in the public sphere, with a focus on storytelling, technologies, AI in Automotive  (Berlin 2017).

Occasionally I mentor graduating students of design and monumental heritage on their personal project. I hold lectures and workshops on photography for urban analysis and architecture, and I teach basic photography, interior and landscape photography.
