My creative practice carries two parallel processes; one of collective analysis that points my attention towards society, culture, religion and science in its exponential evolutionary process, in theoretical and technological terms. Simultaneously a singular, introspective, existential and strongly intimate process happens within myself, a continuous, conscious, subjective observation. Some existential philosophy, Eastern thought and even quantum physics support this scan line and self-observation. Both sides of this bifocality are the building blocks of my reality, of the way I relate to the world and understand existence. As an artist and multimedia producer I design projects that continuously problematize the contemporary individual and collective imaginary. With the use of new media and technology I build theoretical-aesthetic discourses around topics such as: emerging virtual worlds in cyberspace, the avatar and the digital body, artificial intelligence, man-machine integration and all the socio-cultural impact that these have in relationship with the context in which they occur.
fito_segrera is a New York based contemporary artist whose work focuses on new
technologies and digital media. Since his graduation as a Fine Artist and Technologist in
audiovisual and Multimedia production at the Jorge Tadeo Lozano University of Bogotá, his
artistic practice has focused on problematizing around topics such as: the origin of virtual
worlds and their effect on the understanding of reality, the avatar as an extension of the
human body and how it acts upon the construction of identity, man-machine
integration/symbiosis, trans-humanism, wearable technology mediated/mixed reality.
