After studying music at the Jazz Academy in Siena, Marco Barotti began an artistic practice in which he fused the visual arts, sound and new technologies.
The artist’s work is motivated by a desire to invent an artistic language in which a fictional post-futuristic era is expressed through kinetic sound interventions in natural and urban environments. His installations combine audio technology, consumer objects and waste to create moving sculptures animated entirely by sound. The main aim of his work is to create a ‘technological ecosystem’ that plays on similarities with our technology and the animal / plant world. His artworks serve as a metaphor for human impact on the planet, and aim to raise awareness of environmental and social issues.
His work has been exhibited internationally at Ars Electronica (Linz), Saatchi Gallery (London), Science Gallery (Melbourne), Futurium (Berlin), Polytech Festival (Moscow), Zer01ne, (Seoul), Fact (Liverpool), Wro Art Center (Wroclaw), Picknick (Seoul), Isea (Montreal), ARCAM Architecture Center (Amsterdam), silent green (Berlin), Dutch Design Week (Eindhoven), NTU (Singapore), Stuck (Louvain), Kikkk Festival (Namur), Emaf (Osnabrück), Lisboa Soa (Lisbon), La Boral (Gijón), New Holland Island and Sevcableport (Saint Petersburg).
