About Alessio De Marchi
Artist from Torino, Italy. Born in 1982. I grew up playing with materials. In 1999, I discovered my passion for e-waste and began producing some first experimental works. In 2016, I graduated in International Sciences for Cooperation and Development at Università di Torino. Hands-on experience, creativity and technical expertise make me a 360° artist with a touch of social and political entrepreneurship. Since 2014, together with the psychologist Alessandra Turcato, I have started up the WHAT WEEE ARE project, which brings together all our different life experiences and studies. The project aims at raising awareness over the broader issues regarding our technological world focusing on resource wise education and responsible use of raw materials. Stop motion animation has therefore become the ideal means to share both the artwork and the core concept of the WHAT WEEE ARE project.
