Carlo Zanni's artistic practice is focused on the intersection of computation and representation. He paints landscapes and he programs portraits and is currently showing at Bitforms gallery in New York in a group show Prints + Chips
Zanni writes: "I usually program portraits, but "Attempt to bet two fiches" isn’t a personal commissioned portrait (like, for example, my icons for desktop). It’s a social portrait. I took a photo of my time. There isn’t any kind of hidden metaphorical dimension to it. Please look at this work in the same way as you watch the news on NY1."
"Kosovo, Colorado" takes a simulated Balkan village built in Colorado by the US army as a starting point to unravel further links between these two places, such as: the disappearance and reappearance of nuclear waste, incidents of high school violence and violence backed by the state, and the oblique language which is used to rationalize and define these events.

Lin’s films and videos have explored the ways we are shaped by cultural contexts and the possibility/impossibility of translating our experience through representation. The inadequacy and rewards of translation, as a process of representing one language or experience in another, provides the foundation for much of her work.
"everything is not the same" utilizes speech recognition software and psychoanalysis as colliding systems that categorize and condition human behavior. The case study of Anna O., whose hysterical symptoms included a unique speech disorder, is dictated to a computer that generates a transcript that is both frustrating and revelatory. The project examines the way subjects modify their behavior in order to be recognized by systems at large, from social interactions to confrontations with technology, where it is sometimes only the struggle to communicate that remains from the exchange.
