Marco Barotti is a media artist based in Berlin. His work is driven by a desire to invent an artistic language in which a fictional post-futurist era is expressed through kinetic sound interventions in natural and urban environments. His installations merge audio technology, consumer objects and waste into moving sculptures triggered entirely by sound. The primary focus of his work is to create a “tech ecosystem” that plays with resemblances to animals. These artworks serve as a metaphor for the anthropogenic impact on the planet and aim to make people aware of environmental issues. His work has been exhibited internationally in: Ars Electronica (Linz) Wro Art Center (Wroclaw) NGBK Gallery (Berlin), Saatchi Gallery (London), Würth Museum (La Rioja) Futurium (Berlin), Polytech Festival (Moscow), Emaf (Osnabrück), Lisboa Soa (Lisbon), KIKk festival (Namur), New Holland Island (Saint Petersburg) Platoon (Mexico City), Urban Lights Ruhr (Hamm), and List í Ljósi Light Festival (Iceland)

Clams

In nature, clams are detectors of pollutants; they serve as tiny filtration systems. Inspired by this natural phenomenon, Marco Barotti is now presenting his new work Clams, a kinetic sound installation triggered by water quality.
