Short bio
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,  he attempts to question modern ideas about nature, history and the production of knowledge.
His works have been presented in solo shows, group exhibitions, festivals and conferences in Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, Peru, Colombia, United States, Portugal, Germany, England, India, Egypt and Australia. Borsani currently serves as Associate 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). He lives and works in Providence (US) and Buenos Aires (Argentina).
