“I thought 
it was 
internet art.
But I was just

Dear friends,

I just wanted to let you know that starting from today I will exhibit and perform my new online work "The Artist is Typing" on Storage Un.it, a small online space located in a storage unit @ arebyte Gallery in London.

Whenever you want, 24/7, you can check out me , my presence and, ultimately, my artistic aura in the intimate act of typing on my laptop keyboard writing art statements, press releases,  unpublished poetries, self-promotion emails, private love letters, amazon orders, google search queries, HTML code and many other keyboard-based activities.

After all, art is life and art, as life, is what happens while you are typing.

The online exhibition is curated by Filippo Lorenzin and will be hosted by Storage Un.it, a small project space located in a storage unit @ arebyte Gallery in London.

About Guido Segni

With a background in Hacktivism, Net Art and Video Art, Guido Segni, lives and works somewhere at the intersections between art, pop internet culture and data hallucination.

Mainly focused on the daily (ab)use of Internet, his work is characterized by minimal gestures on technology which combine conceptual aproaches with a traditional hacker attitude in making things odd, useless and dysfunctional.

In quite recent years he moved from an identity to another producing works, actions and interventions under pseudonyms, collectives and multiple names (Dedalus, Clemente Pestelli, Guy McMusker, Angela Merelli, Anna Adamolo, Guy The Bore, Umberto Stanca, Silvie Inb, Fosco Loiti Celant, Guru Miri Goro, Leslie Bleus, Luther Blissett).

Co-founder of Les Liens Invisibles , he exhibited in galleries, museums (MAXXI Rome, New School of New York, KUMU Art Museum of Talinn) and art & media-art international festivals (International Venice Biennale, Piemonte SHARE Festival, Transmediale).

Currently he teaches at the Accademia di Belle Arti of Carrara, directs the imaginary REFRAMED lab and he is part of the editorial committee for DESERTO online magazine.

About Storage Un.it

Storage Un.it is a small project space located in a storage unit @ arebyte Gallery. The space features a series of projects taking place online and investigates the relationship 
between the URL & IRL.

The space was initiated in Nov 2015 as part of 'The Wrong' the online Biennale with the project dystrophies.com which looked at the transformation from analogue to digital formats.

For our online residencies we have partnered with New Hive a multimedia-publishing  platform. We provide a blank space and custom tools to simplify the process of creating rich multimedia experiences on the web.
