Gloria graduated at Politecnico of Milan and later obtained an MA at Brera's Fine Art Academy in Milan. She is a professional artist focused on researching the sensory engagement of an immaterial force like light, combining digital technologies and physical spaces for creating immersive and emotional headspaces. In 2008 she moved to the UK and founded 'Aether & Hemera', an interdisciplinary collaboration to explore ways in which light could be use to create aesthetic interactions when allied whit digital technologies. Her artistic aim is to provoke memories, explore aesthetic interactions and elicit feelings of connective human experiences in a required-to-participate audience.
