Ricardo Trigo, B. 1980. Throughout my career, my work has gradually focused on exploring the relationship between the computational paradigm and art. As well as, to derive the artistic research as a practice based on the production of free energy.
My task is focused on collecting samples and connecting data about how Western techno-cognitive magma becomes naturalized within artistic knowledge. In this sense, the process of colonization of human knowledge through science and technology has not only ingested the way art materializes, but also its discursive, disciplinary, economic and ideological genesis. In this way, on the one hand, my work is based on articulating evidence to make clear that process of subordination between progress and art, and on the other hand, I concentrate on making small fissures and relocations in that correspondence. In order to confront forces such as human animality, emotions or impulsivity on this normative system that is executed under the sign of progress. In short, my goal is to propose another type of non-binary reciprocity between technology and nature, between idea and form, between software and hardware, modifying their densities and changing its measures of value.
