Alejandro Borsani (b. Argentina) is an artist and educator who explores the intersection of natural and artificial systems through a dynamic process of inquiry into the history of science, ideas about nature and technoscientific discourses. His work makes use of different technologies to stage intimate, poetic, and philosophical engagements between people and their natural environment. Combining a Romantic sensibility with conceptual rigor and minimal presentation, he attempts to question modern ideas about nature, history and the production of knowledge.
His works have been presented in solo and group exhibitions internationally, including the Buenos Aires Museum of Modern Art (Buenos Aires, Argentina); VideoBrasil (São Paulo, Brasil); Villa Elisabeth (Berlin, Germany); Center for PostNatural History (Pittsburg, PA); ACM SIGGRAPH (Los Angeles, CA); 14th Biennial Symposium for Arts and Technology (New London, CT); Currents - The Santa Fe International New Media Festival (Santa Fe, NM); The Story of Light (Panjim, India); MOFO 2015 (Hobart, Australia); IDEAS_15 – International Digital Media and Arts Association (Johnson City, TN); Museo Histórico Cabildo (Montevideo, Uruguay); UMass Lowell (Lowell, MA); FASE 9 - Arte, Ciencia y Tecnología (Buenos Aires, Argentina); Festival Internacional de la Imagen (Manizales, Colombia); Cairotronica - International Symposium of Electronic Arts (Cairo, Egypt).
Borsani currently serves as Assistant Professor of Experimental & Foundation Studies at the Rhode Island School of Design. He holds a MFA in Electronic Arts from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (2012), a MFA in Electronic Visualization from the School of Art and Design of the University of Illinois at Chicago (2010) and a BA in Audiovisual Design from the School of Architecture, Design and Urbanism at the University of Buenos Aires (2007).
