About Manuela Corti

I was born in Siena, Italy, I’m living in London since 2003.
My skills in 30 years of artistic activity are: painting, sculpture, digital works and environmental installations.
I've always had the geometry as an integral part of my work, not only of my artistic training but also as a scientific philosopher. Displacement is a three-dimensional journey. Each point appears in my ideal space, that represents the cosmic space, and moves, leaves a trail, is displaced.


1985 University of Bologna, Doctoral Degree in Philosophy of Science, Magna cum Laude.After obtaining my doctoral degree in Philosophy with a specialization in Epistemology at the University of Bologna, I spent four years as an Assistant Professor with Professor A. Pasquinelli, Chair of Philosophy of Science at the University, gaining experience in research and teaching. Since 1990, I have devoted myself exclusively to the visual arts, with particular stress on multimedia: video and post-production, digital images and computer image processing and Net Art.
