Class 1992, Priscilla Pallante is a photographer and a visual artist living and working in Rome. She had her Bachelor’s degree with honors in Photography at the European Institute of Design in Rome (2016).
With her graduation project she started a research about the relationship between photography and new technologies, in order to find new strategies to represent what cannot be represented. She uses the paradoxes of photography to produce illusion of reality: she works with photography in a documentary way, but what she documents it’s not visible in the physical world. Her curiosity brought her to investigate the relation between photography and other disciplines and to mix it with other media, keeping an eye on the relation between art and science. She’s interested in the progress and she try to use it to bring photography beyond the photograph itself. Her research focuses on the visualization of a process, it follows an idea that becomes object . An idea that loses its three-dimensionality to fall again in a virtual dimension through the photographic object, in a circular process in which photography interacts with new technologies and science in order to transform a trick in a truth.
