David Ferrando Giraut lives and works in Gijón ES and London UK. He is a graduate in Fine Arts from Universidad Politécnica de Valencia and MFA in Fine Arts from the Goldsmiths College. In 2010 he was one of the eight video- artists selected for the LUX Associate Artists Programme in London.

His work, focused mainly in video, sound and installation, combines several conceptual threads, such as the hybridization of natural elements, technology and socio-political organisation and how it has been managed through history. It calls into question the modern concept of temporality, proposing a search for continuity through notions such as transversality, Proustian reminiscence, the ruin, and its parallelisms with audiovisual recording.

Among his recent exhibitions and screenings are:
