Alessandro Giannì (Rome 1989). In his work he collects aesthetic fragments from the web with the intention of giving them new life. In his artworks the analogical practice of painting merges with the use of new media, with the Internet and the digital culture, investigating the connections between the digital universe, parallel universes, and the dreamlike and introspective world of human beings. In his research there are different types of works, both of a traditional nature (painting, drawing and sculpture), and of a technological nature (artificial intelligence, VR, video, animation, 3D printing). In 2019 he has created a piece of artificial intelligence called “VASARI”, which can emulate his creative and conceptual process and can assist him in composing sketches. In 2020 he was among the founders of Spaziomensa, an artist-run space created to enhance the Roman artistic ferment. He has exhibited his works in several institutions in Italy and abroad including: the American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center (Washington DC, USA); the residence of the Italian ambassador to the USA “Villa Firenze” (Washington DC, USA); the MAXXI museum (Rome, Italy); the MACRO museum (Rome, Italy); the Casa delle Armi (Rome, Italy); the Swiss Institute of Rome (Italy); the Swiss Institute of Milan (Italy); Kühlhaus Berlin (Berlin, Germany); the Winter Museum (Siena, Italy), the Gardens of the Venice Casino (Venice, Italy). He was the art director for the EGH project by Enrico Ghezzi and Emiliano Montanari at the 73rd Venice Biennale Cinema International Film Festival and in 2014 he took part in the show Ñewpressionism at the Swiss Cultural Institute in Milan, curated by the Greek artist Miltos Manetas. Recent exhibitions include: Due to the Image, Postmasters Gallery (New York, USA); Ineffable Worlds, Tang Contemporary Art (Hong Kong); Transfiguration: leaving reality behind, Postmasters Gallery (New York, USA); Group Show, Spaziomensa (Rome, Italy); Salon Palermo, Rizzuto Gallery (Palermo, Italy); Expo Azimut Libera Impresa (Fiera Milano-Rho); Messinscèna, Numero Cromatico (Rome, Italy); Questa razza di diavoli non conosce regole!, Maker Faire - The European Edition; L’apocalisse dell’ora, AlbumArte (Rome, Italy). His works are published in many books and specialized journals including: R. Miracco (ed.), Italian Artists at Villa Firenze, Embassy of Italy Washington, 2021; C. Biasini Selvaggi e V. Catricalà (eds.), Arte e tecnologia del terzo millennio. Scenari e protagonisti, Electa-Collezione Farnesina, 2020; S. Arcagni (ed.), Immersi nel Futuro. La Realtà virtuale, nuova frontiera del cinema e della TV, RAI-Palermo University Press, 2020; G. Armogida (ed.), ROMA NUDA. 60 conversazioni sull’arte, MINIERA, 2020.

"Due to the image" are a series of paintings I created with the collaboration of VASARI: a custom artificial intelligence program created specifically to emulate my creative and conceptual processes, essentially becoming a "collaborator" during the production of new paintings. VASARI - the software - is able to conjure digital sketches based on certain indications and through the reworking of my previous paintings and images collected from the internet and my archives. Some of these digital elaborations become oil paintings on canvas made by me.

The oil painting is the result of several interactions I have with the AI. The AI's abilities will evolve over time.

"This race of devils knows no rules!" is the title of a cycle of works usable by means of the HTC Vive visor, which allows, in addition to the fruition in Virtual Reality by the viewer, also an interaction through a controller.

Wearing the viewer you find yourself immersed in an unlimited space where multiple distorted and three-dimensional shapes float with indefinite criteria within dream landscapes or monochrome backgrounds. The images present in this universe are transfigured fragments oftransfigured fragments of some of my sculptural productions, with which you can interact in a random way through the controller. 
Every time I make a ceramic sculpture, the sculpture is scanned and becomes part of my 3d image archive.
