“Digital Creatures” is the title of ArtFutura’s last exhibition in Rome, showing a new breed of artists that arrive from different generations, countries and professional fields: Universal Everything (UK), Can Buyukberber (USA / Turkey), Sachiko Kodama (Japan), Paul Friedlander (UK), Chico MacMurtrie / Amorphic Robot Works (USA) and Esteban Diácono (Argentina).
At the beginning of this 21st century we’re all mutating into “digital creatures”. Our jobs, our emotions, our friendships, our art… everything is performed more and more in the digital realm.

“In 1990 we still didn’t use the Internet. Video games and special effects were rudimentary and we lacked digital cameras or social media. Digital technology was not yet present in our lives. But we were sure that something was going to change. The Cybernetic Revolution promised a new world and an alternative reality of infinite possibilities”.
