Experimental Design

Leonardo Edde

A dreamer and maker with an inquisitive nature, sharing his peculiar understanding of existence through artistic expression.

Following undergraduate studies in Hospitality Management, Leonardo Eddé (b.1993) decided to reconnect with his burgeoning creativity and childlike fascination for the world around him and pursue graduate studies in Art & Design.

Oscillating between contemplation and reflection, he works intuitively, following creative impulses and developing singular processes and narratives. 

"Make, break apart, and rebuild. Assemble, oppose and combine. The story of a child trying to make sense and an adult who understood that you can’t.

As a sculptor, I strive to convey magic by way of form.

Through playful, yet precise compositions, I create poetical meaning, and shape arising stimuli into objects, atmospheres, and narratives."

The Island is a sculptural installation inspired by the philosophical concept of Heterotopia. Borrowing from the lexicon of Japanese gardens, it functions both as a microsome of the world and as a physical incarnation of inner realities to be experienced through contemplation.

Aporia combines Eastern and Western philosophies with intuitive making in an effort to challenge materialist’s metaphysical assumptions while evoking ideas of potential and growth and blurring the boundaries between natural and artificial.
