Better known as Glitchdo, Guido Iafigliola is a Uruguayan artist who specializes in generative art, using computer-based systems and algorithms to create completely original artworks. His pieces have a futuristic aesthetic, blending the worlds of reality and new technology—whether that’s distorted cityscapes or giant, unnatural forms protruding from otherwise ordinary landscapes. Basing his works in the digital realm, Guido invites viewers to question the power of images and their status as “reality,” as well as examine the role of machines in our lives. The work we featured focuses on glitches, and sees Guido manipulate existing images to create intentional errors and, in turn, new works of art.
“For me, the non-digital and the digital worlds are not in conflict.”
