Simon Del Favero’s current practice is focused on how contemporary space exists as an interactive process involving people, objects, and machines. This process reveals a new type of habitat, one where the human is no longer the centre of activity. He typically uses a combination of found subjects, careful framing, and available light to create photographs which appear rendered.
Del Favero lives with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), a debilitating disease of the nervous and immune systems. ME is characterised by Post-Exertional Malaise (PEM), an exacerbation of symptoms which occurs after physical or cognitive exertion and leads to a reduction in functional capacity.
