Take and assault one of the contemporary entertainment fetishes, the video game: “FOV01” by Marco Mendeni. Thanks to a decoding with which the functionality of the original game is transmuted, it carries you from recreational dimensions to islands of disturbing hypnotism, to tell in the best way possible the world in which we are migrating. My work explores the global diffusion of the digital information technologies and videogame. My main concern is artistic and theoric experimentation towards the analysis of new media impact around the concept of change in the perception of space and time and the relationship between reality and simulated experience and web cultural participation in the digital era.
Born in Brescia, now commuting between Milan and Berlin, Marco Mendeni has long been dedicated to artistic research that experiences the contamination of materials, computer animation and 3D production. All of this with a particular focus on the process that leads the videogame medium to become a social medium. Graduated in new technologies to art. His works has been presented at electronic arts festivals and exhibitions.
