Once upon a time networked screens were the realm of media experimentation, social activism and utopia. But now that the global pandemic has accelerated our digital habits and screens are defining new perimeters of constriction, what are the possibilities for experimentation in digital arts? Through the presentation of Guido Segni's works over the past years, it will be discussed how algorithms are shaping reality and why it is important to find new ways to interpret the digital medium outside of the use of screens.

Guido Segni
With a background in hacktivism, net art and video art, Guido lives and works somewhere, online and offline, playing with art, internet culture and data hallucinations.

Mainly focused on the daily (ab)use of the Internet, his work is characterized by minimal gestures on technology which combines conceptual approaches with a traditional hacker attitude in making things odd, useless and dysfunctional.

Co-founder of Les Liens Invisibles , he exhibited in galleries, museums (MAXXI Rome, New School of New York, KUMU Art Museum of Talinn) and art & media-art international festivals (International Venice Biennale, Piemonte SHARE Festival, Transmediale). Recently he has been shortlisted for the art division of the 20th Japan Media Arts Festival(2017), has been finalist at Prize Arte Laguna (2016) and got an honorary mention at Transmediale (2011) with Les Liens Invisibles.

Currently he's in the middle of his laziness five-year plan. In his spare time he co-directs the Green Cube Gallery, teaches at the Accademia di Belle Arti of Carrara and directs the imaginary REFRAMED lab.
