I am a media artist working with time-based digital and physical media, in the form of installations and performances. I use technology as a tool of expression but also creating work that offers a reflection on technology itself. I am interested in the way digital technology shapes our experience of the physical world by the way it allows us to capture, reconstruct and simulate it. To comment on this phenomenon, I develop sonic and visual computational techniques to reconstruct experiences already vanished and design interaction for the visitor to simulate situations which are alternative but connected to the real life. My work combines material and digital elements to create hybrid forms, going through processes at times guided by the agency of the matter and analogue intuition while other times by algorithmic control. In this interchange, matter can be processed in a systematic way while code can be handled in all its textility. Computation is a method to study the relation between representation and simulation in digital media.
Roberto Fusco (formerly known as Roberto Pugliese), (M.Phil. Music and Media Technology, D. Sc. (Technology), ITA/FI, b. 1980, is an Italian media artist based in Helsinki. He works with time-based digital and physical media, resulting in multichannel audiovisual installations and interactive multimedia works with kinetic sculptural elements. He has presented his work in festivals such as Ars Electronica, VAFT (FI), NIME, RIXC (LT), FLUSSI (ITA), Currents New Media 2016 (USA), Videoforma (RU), PIXELACHE (FI), AAVE (FI), Borealis (NO), Plektrum (EE) and CARTES FLUX (FI) and Loikka (FI) and in galleries such as ArsLibera, Third Space, Titanik, Rajatila, MUU Galleria (FI), the Science Gallery (IE) and EYEBEAM (NY, US).
He co-funded with Andrea Mancianti the audiovisual duo and media art studio QUIETSPEAKER.
Roberto Fusco (M.Phil. Music and Media Technology, D. Sc. (Technology), e’ un artista multimediale che vive e lavora ad Helsinki. All’intersezione tra processi fisici e computazionali, Roberto concentra la sua ricerca artistica nell’uso delle tecniche digitali capaci di registrare, ricostruire e simulare la realtà, esponendo il ruolo della tecnologia stessa nel mediare la nostra percezione ed esperienza.
L’opera, nella forma di installazioni o performance audiovisive con elementi real-time e interattivi, combina elementi materiali e digitali verso la creazione di forme ibride in cui diventano manifesti i processi di negoziazione con la tecnologia.
