Gustavo Romano is a visual artist, curator, and theorist. From creating virtual or performative devices, Romano creates interventions, actions, and interactive situations, experimenting with his modes of documentation – video, photography, graphic publications, net art -. By diverting objects of daily use or technological mechanisms from their usual function, he reflects on the routine and the role of the subject in the society of control strengthened by the new information technologies.
In 1995 he founded the website Fin del Mundo, one of the first platforms for the exhibition and diffusion of net art in Latin America.
“Archivos Atómicos” exhibition international guess artist.
Title: Channel 01
Channel 01 is an artistic project by Gustavo Romano that was conceived as an automatic audiovisual news channel, based on “artificial counter-intelligence” algorithms and material from the network itself.
Channel 01 offers a fragmented chronicle of mediatised hyperreality, a fractal story with all its multiple variants, all of them feasible, all of them credible. Channel 01 captures, reorganises and projects a cascade of possible worlds, of alternative, dystopian, dreamlike events that result in an uncomfortable portrait, not of our reality, but of our fears or desires.
