Screen Walk with Guido Segni
In Screen Walks, a series of live-streamed explorations of digital spaces, selected artists and researchers investigate artistic strategies taking place online. The project gives an insight into practices using the screen as a medium. From re-contextualising pictures found on online marketplaces and uncovering data brokers’ invisible circulation of images to analysing in-game photography and the social, political and economic implications of games – Screen Walks examines various approaches, offers a behind-the-scenes look at artists’ work and uncovers new, current and forgotten digital spaces. Screen Walks is a collaboration between The Photographers’ Gallery in London and Fotomuseum Winterthur.
Guido Segni (b. 1986) – also known as Guy McMusker – has a background in hacktivism, net art and video art. He lives and works online and offline, playing with art, internet culture and data hallucinations. Mainly focused on the daily (ab)use of the Internet, his work combines conceptual approaches with a traditional hacker attitude.
