A few weeks ago I exhibited The Middle Finger Response at Premio Nocivelli 2017 in Brescia where I was one of the finalists for the Photography section.
As I actually am not a photographer at all, the jury had the decency to exclude my work from the winners list. At least I had the opportunity to display a moving selection of some crazy middle fingers on a framed screen of an Electric Object device.

I wrote a very important book.
And after a long time and very hard work it's finally out.
It's titled "A is for Art, B is for Bullshit" and it's my personal view on conceptual art, conceptualism and contemporary bullshits. Read more
Since last year I'm directing a lab for media experimentation and activism in Carrara. The lab is called REFRAMED and works and plays in collaboration with many students of the Fine Art School (the Accademia).

Friday 12th September from 6.00 pm at Pavillon Social in Lucca Guido segni will preview his last video work called "Proofs of existence of a cloud worker”, fully developed for the exhibition “Pics ir it didn’t happen “ at Hoc/gallery.
The video was realized paying 50 workers from the crowd sourcing Amazon Mechanical Turk platform which were called from different areas of the world.
The project "Pics or it didn't happen", developed specifically for the gallery, is characterized as a researching space about the three-points relationship between the web, image and reality.The design that animates the screen is a readymade taken from the well-known Google Images and from others web icons that are modelled and warped from the artist. So the project consists in letting fly the images taken from the most popular search engine, indeed utilizing the statement “Pics or it didn't happen”.
From internet to the real world and again around, the images are passed, from place to place inside and outside the screen using the same ways that are provided to us from the web and the digital instruments. From a very simple thing as a printer to the various online services of print ondemand, arriving than to the necessary device video-photo.
