At times it looks like everything is taking a place in the cloud. Backups are not being stored in a discrete physical way; they’re spreading all over mass media and on the internet, directly affecting our artistic and cultural heritage. But even in this massive virtual space, is it possible to find a digital void? It would be an ideal confrontation of no-content/mute-content and life as it really is: Reality… but what is reality, anyway?
In the near future, it will be hard – almost impossible – to explain our history without links, without the right codecs to support the varied formats. Should we save some additional backups for the coming generations?

I am an Argentinian digital artist and industrial designer. I specialize in real-time AV projects. I push beyond limits with a slightly chaotic style, blending influences from motion graphics and industrial design. I am currently working on several video art projects, lectures, workshops and audiovisual performances that reflect on the new paradigms of digital culture.

The internectuals.

I organize some of the inputs and outputs of my digital life today like this:

Twitter – my source for tech news
Facebook – my ticket to digital narcissism
Tumblr – daily inspirations
Instagram – my testing ground for new video content
Snapchat – just digital trash

I guess we all have similar schemes, representations and formats for our online selves. It’s just a matter of digital responsibilities, reshaping them and sorting them based on what we believe should be shared and exhibited online.

It seems like what interests us most is just a matter of how we read each other’s content: images on Instagram and Snapchat, text on Twitter, shared posts on Facebook. Screens are the main objects of our era.

Recently, as an approach to this topic, I worked on a series of sculptures and video projects that question the contemporary obsession with a constant, multifaceted online presence. When the loop and the random dominate our media and recent art practices, (post-)internet art appears:

My Friends.

I am currently focused on audiovisual projects based on real time digital video manipulations, with sounds ranging from experimental techno, glitch, bass and even to broken-beat. Ultimately, my art aims to question how we interact with technology in our daily lives.
