Personal profile


Giovanni is a theorist and practitioner working at the intersection of design studies, social and political theory, STS and philosophy of technology. His most recent research has been primarily concerned with the social, cultural, and political dimension of practices of use, considering how these can be a site for the prefiguration of new modes of collectivity. Giovanni's work takes a transdisciplinary approach often combining conceptual, material, and participatory interventions. Other key interests in his research and teaching are critical logistics and border studies, social critiques of individualism and processes of individuation, experimental somatic practices and pedagogies, and affect studies.
