Get ready for our next round of Tweeterviews! After our summer series, we’ll get you through the cold winter months with our selection of the most exciting figures in the crypto-art space: artists, builders and collectors… keep an eye out!

This week we welcome Sabato Visconti (aka Sabatobox), a Brazilian new media artist and photographer based in Western Massachusetts. Sabato graduated from Amherst College in 2009 with a degree in Political Science and began experimenting with glitch processes in 2011 with the help of a defective memory card that randomly wrote zeroes onto JPEG files. Since then, Sabato has sought to interrogate imaging practices that 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, through works that captures the plight of the subject in the face of environmental turbulence driven by systems designed to fail and malfunction.

Tweeterviews are a live Twitter interview series by Electric Artefacts - returning context and meaning to some of the artefacts lost in the seas of social media. Read our article about Tweeterviews.
