Luca Pozzi (b. 1983) lives and works in Milan, Italy. He is a visual artist and cultural mediator. Luca Pozzi conducts, within his own domain of reference, „The Messages of Gravity“ program aimed at extending the possible emerging of interdisciplinary correspondences to a beautiful network of pure information. Drawing on the theoretical contributions expressed by researchers and artists indirectly involved in his projects, Luca Pozzi, by employing different media and new technologies, comes to realize hybrid installations, characterized by an original use of the force of gravity.He focuses his research on physics and particularly on T.O.E. (Theory Of Everythings): String Theory, Loop quantum Gravity and noncommutative Geometry. His last exhibition in May, 2011, was part of Loops Congress in the Main Campus of CSIC (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas) in Madrid and in he was the curator of Biennale Art-Science at C.A.B. (Centre d’Art Bastille) of Grenoble, during the Lyon Biennale 2011.
In 2010 Pozzi a guest of The Albert Einstein Institute of Golm (Berlin) and of La Faculté de Science of Luminy (Marseille) were he started the “Quantum Gravity Cave Archive“ which consists of documenting the hands of researchers with a special UV LED spray technology on a phosphorous surface. In 2009 he won the Dena Fondation Residency for Contemporary Art at the Centre International d’accueil et d’échanges de Récollets, Paris. A year later, he attended residencies at PROGRAM (Initiative for Art + Architecture collaborations) in Berlin and in 2011, the Mazama Residency at Sage Canyon Drive, Winthrop, Wa, United States.
