Bio:


  • FISEA1993, ISEA1997

    Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil in 1945, Carlos Fadon Vicente holds two undergraduate degrees from the Universidade de Sao Paulo: Civil Engineering from the Escola Politecnica in 1968, and Fine Arts from the Escola de Comunicacdes e Artes in 1982. He earned his Master of Fine Arts degree in 1989 from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, on a scholarship from the Brazilian government. The status of photography as a system for elaboration of realities as well as essays about the urban landscape are his key issues, since he started with photography in 1975. Drawn from his cultural background, the concern for art and technology synergy further developed in 1985 through the use of computer systems directed to image construction, thereafter to man-machine collaboration in digital imag­ing and multimedia pieces. Around 1987 he began a series of interactive experiments with telecommunications, employing slow-scan TV and videotex, later adding on fax machines and computers. Carlos Fadon Vicente has partici­pated in one-man shows, symposia and group exhibitions, and his works are present in public and private collections. He has articles and portfolios published in the Americas and Europe.
