Fito Segrera (b. 1983, COL) is an artist and creative technologist. He holds an MFA degree in Design and Technology from Parsons, The New School in New York. Fito works at the intersection between art, philosophy and technology. Segrera’s philosophical and poetic systems investigate our conventional models of cognition and perception, the limitations of Mind and our relationship with the world and ourselves. His current artistic practice attempts to use the rationality of artificial intelligence to lift the veil of the irrational by exposing the errors behind machine learning and cognitive computing systems. Segrera’s installations and sculptures act as instruments for understanding the limitations of human perception and our ideas about the nature of reality.
His work has been exhibited internationally in festivals and events such as: Open Codes 2 at ZKM Center for Art and New Media in Karlsruhe (Germany), "I am here to learn: On Machinic Interpretations of the World" at Frankfurter Kunstverein in Frankfurt (Germany), "UNREAL: The Algorithmic Present" at HEK House of Electronic Arts in Basel (Switzerland), “Just What Is It That Makes Today's Computers So Intriguing, So Nonsensical?” at CAC Chronus Art Center in Shanghai (China), Future Intelligence: AI Art at Tank Museum in Shanghai (China), “The 6th Guanzhou Triennial at Guandong Museum of Art in Guanzhou (China), “9th Vladivostok International Biennale” in Vladivostok (Russia), "VARIATIONS" in Paris (France), "PLUNC Festival" in Lisbon (Portugal), "SIGGRAPH" in Vancouver (Canada), "Collision 20 & 21" at Boston’s Ciberarts Gallery (USA), "Huston International Performance Biennale" in Huston (USA), "SXSW" in Austin (USA), "Emoji" at EYEBEAM in New York (USA).
