Homo Ludens’ Playground – Mattia Casalegno

Mattia Casalegno will be Spring/Summer artist-in-resident at Eyebeam, the leading North American art and technology center in New York. He was selected citing Flusser: “The new human being is not a man of action anymore but a player: Homo Ludens as opposed to Homo Faber: life is no longer a drama for him but a performance. It is no longer a question of action but of sensation”.

In human history artists often function as sensitive measuring devices of global shifts. Mattia Casalegno (multifaceted Italian artist based in Los Angeles, 1981) takes inspiration from disciplines such as anthropology, biology, ecology, and neurosciences, deploying a vast array of technologies and expressive forms, with a natural inclination for new media languages.
