Alessandro Giannì (Rome 1989) In his work he collects aesthetic fragments from the web with the intent of giving them a new existence. In his works the analogical practice of painting merges with the use of new media, with the Internet and 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). He has exhibited in several institutions in Italy and abroad including: the American University Katzen Arts Center (Washington DC); the residence of the Italian ambassador to the USA “Villa Firenze” (Washington DC); the MAXXI museum (Rome); the MACRO museum (Rome); the House of Arms (Rome); the Swiss Institute of Rome; the Swiss Institute of Milan ; Kühlhaus Berlin (Berlin); the Winter Museum (Siena), the Gardens of the Venice Casino. He was art director in the EGH, a project whit Enrico Ghezzi and Emiliano Montanari inside the 73rd Venice Biennale of Cinema. Recent exhibitions include: RE-NEW, Postmasters Gallery (New York - Rome); Expo Azimut Libera Impresa (Fiera Milano-Rho); Messinscèna, Numero Cromatico (Rome); Questa razza di diavoli non conosce regole!, Maker Faire - The European Edition; L'apocalisse dell'ora, AlbumArte. Shh… it’s a secret, Postmasters Gallery (New York- Rome, 2020); Spaziomensa - group show, Spaziomensa (Rome, 2020); In 2020 he is one of the founders of Spaziomensa, an artist-run space created to enhance the Roman artistic ferment. His work is published in books and specialized magazines including: Arte e tecnologia del terzo millennio / Quaderni della collezione Farnesina, published by Electa, curated by Cesare Biasini Selvaggi and Valentino Catricalà; Immersi nel Futuro / RAI White Book, curated by Simone Arcagni; ROMA NUDA - 60 conversations on art, curated by Giuseppe Armogida.

"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.

questa razza di diavoli  non conosce regole!2017-2020, video projection and Htc Vive, programming and graphics by Unboolean

"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.
