Guido Iafigliola aka "Glitchdo" - Uruguay, 1982

 

{ENG} Guido's work questions the widespread belief that contemporary art is characterized by a lack of deep or philosophical content. The achievement of his works invites questions that range from the power of images and their status as creators of reality, to the role of machines, chance and above all error: failures produce beauty. As Roberta Bosco says, it is in this area where «the battle aesthetic and conceptual of this century. .

Generative art, a terminology that began to be used in the late 1990s, is based on autonomous systems that reproduce algorithmic structures and whose results are always novel, sometimes unexpected. Exploring some different software and hardware, Guido Iafigliola lives with chaos and randomness on a daily basis. The loss of control over part of the creative process is, by itself, one of the crucial points in the practice of it.

 

{ESP}  La obra de Guido cuestiona la creencia generalizada de que el arte contemporáneo se caracteriza por la carencia de contenidos profundos o filosóficos. La consecución de sus obras invita a cuestionamientos que van desde el poder de las imágenes y su estatuto como creadoras de realidad, hasta el papel de las máquinas, del azar y sobre todo del error: los fallos producen belleza. Como dice Roberta Bosco, es en esta área donde se da «la batalla estética y conceptual de este siglo».

El arte generativo, terminología que empieza a utilizarse a finales de los años noventa, está basado en sistemas autónomos que reproducen estructuras algorítmicas y cuyos resultados son siempre novedosos, a veces inesperados. Con la ayuda de diferentes softwares y hardwares, Guido Iafigliola convive a diario con el caos y la aleatoriedad. La pérdida de control sobre parte del proceso creativo es, por eso mismo, uno de los puntos cruciales de su práctica.
