Sabato Visconti is a Brazilian-born new media artist and photographer based in Western Massachusetts. He obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Amherst College in 2009. Sabato began experimenting with glitch and digital media in 2011 with the help of a defective memory card that randomly wrote zeroes on JPEG files. Since that moment, he has sought to explore how imaging practices have become absorbed by digital processes, hybridized media, online networks, and machine intelligence –technologies that have also enabled apparatuses for social conditioning, mass surveillance, and necropolitics. His work captures the plight of the subject in the face of environmental turbulence driven by systems designed to fail and malfunction.
