Paolo Cirio

Media Artist - Sculptural Performances of Mediated Informational Power

This award-winning artist born in 1979 in Italy has worked as a media artist in various fields: net-art, street-art, video-art, software-art and experimental fiction. He investigates perception and the creation of cultural, political and economic realities manipulated by modes of control over information's power. His work contributes to the reflection and understanding on the power of information and media, by seeing art as a means to grab attention and to inform critically, invent utopias and provoke subversive acts through visual and emotional sensational impact. Through researching methodologies for manipulating information, his art becomes an active agent to educate, inform, investigate, organize and influence contemporary society.
