Mattia Casalegno is an Italian artist working with sculpture, sound, live media, wearables, and immersive installations. His work explores the physical and sensory perceptions of its viewers, evoking experiences that are fully immersive, sensorially embodied, and/or psychologically heightened.

A multidisciplinary, heavily research-based practice, his work investigates subjects in biology, neuroscience, and ecology. He combines the conceptual framework of each project with the exploration of unusual materials and technologies, such as glycerin soap, thermoplastics, living tissue, electro-encephalographic interfaces.
