Federico Díaz is a multi-faceted artist who has reflected upon the relationship between the frenetic development of computer technology, new media and universal human experience of mythical type since the mid 1990s. Díaz’s work intuitively sorts out the conflictual nature of this relationship. He tries to give bearing to the complexity of the chaotic post-industrial existence of man in his natural state; in his primary, that is emotional and social bases. Díaz’s orientation on the relationship between science and art, his intense interest in ecological and urbanist issues, his experimentation with design and architecture, technical precision and the high cost of work – these are traits that are fully uncommon on the Czech art scene. They put his work in the context of international electronic art, which immediately speaks to the global spectator. A number of Diaz’s project have been shown in Paris, London, Milan, Madrid, Düsseldorf, Tokyo and Linz.
