R—MANTELLI


Riccardo Mantelli dismantles
the alghoritmic pattern which makes
the software work by opening breaches
of infidelity in programming
and letting out hypnotic automatisms
on the oneiric side of the machine,
symptoms of desire for the “dream inducing machine” of the computer:
unproductive drives held inside their
own silicium reverie.

We are embarking in a journey from
the ludic desire of a rebellious computer
to the automatic luddism
of a machine-like aesthetics
with a tendency towards disobedience and oriented to the electric filter
of an aesthetics frozen in the creation act of an anarchic beauty of malfunction.


Riccardo Mantelli smantella il tessuto algoritmico di funzionament del software aprendo brecce di infedeltà nella programmazione, lasciando affiorare automatismi ipnotici nella superficie onirica
della macchina, sintomi di desiderio della “macchina del sogno” del computer: pulsioni improduttive imbrigliate nella propria reverie al silicio. Dal desiderio ludicodi un computer ribelle al luddism automatico di un’estetica macchinalecon una vocazion alla disobbedienza, virata al filtro elettrico di una estetica inceppat nella produzione di bellezza anarchicadel malfunzionamento.





   
Disobedient Objects
for Counter Tourism
AI Camera, Anti GPS, more
2007—20





Homo ludens impinges on his environment: He interrupts, changes, intensifies; he follows paths and in passing, leaves traces of his presence everywhere.
— Constant

In a world increasingly pervaded by precision and glossy algorithms we need to get lost and let ourselves go through these disobedient objects.

Anti-GPS
An anti-gps navigator to get lost in the urban space. A way to encourages travellers to experience different ways of seeing and behaving, to be open to new experiences and to let chance be the guide.
"Sick of sightseeing? Tired of tour guides? Then why not try this device, a new approach to travel that starts inside the cpu-scape and can lead anywhere.

PhAI
A camera that reverses the user-object role, where an artificial intelligence being uses man to expand his knowledge of the world. An object to reflect on design for non-humans. An object to investigate the expressive capabilities of neural networks and algorithms.

DataDating
A tool to meet the unknown. Disrupting socialization going to different non-appointments around the city.

Glitch Pop: An exploration on the glitch-alike aesthetics

In my works I don't use new media and new technologies in the sense traditionally assigned to them. I try to appropriate their soul, using them in an unusual way and hijacking these technologies; I take a critical and detached position with respect to media mechanisms using strategies of infiltration, provocation and interruption. I mainly dedicate myself to the aesthetics of the error, the disturbance and technical and software failure, the dysfunctionality and aesthetics of the machinery.In a nutshell, I try to make visible those processes that normally work under smooth surfaces, in the depths of the machine.My works approach technology not from the point of view of smoothness, they make the fusion of real and virtual worlds flexible, such as ... those of accident, friction and breakage that represent the necessary elements of any technical reality.
