Fito Segrera is a Colombian artist and creative technologist whose work is located at the intersection of art, philosophy and technology. Segrera's philosophical and poetic systems investigate our conventional models of cognition and perception, the limitations of the human mind and its relationship to context. His artistic practice uses the rationality implicit in artificial intelligence to probe the irrational, exposing the errors behind the process of machine learning and computational cognition systems. Segrera's installations and sculptures are instrumental in understanding the limitations of human perception and our conventions about the nature of reality.
