INTRODUCING: Julio Aquino
Julio Aquino (Unión Hidalgo, Oaxaca, 1999) is a multidisciplinary artist with a background in composition and theoretical music currently experimenting with new ways of using digital tools and processes for visual and sonorous creation. The Bodrios series (Artificial Intelligence-generated images printed on Hahnemühle photo paper) is born from an exploration with GANs (Generative Adversarial Networks: neuronal networks that generate image) about pareidolia and how gradually in their learning process they begin to generate vague and random stimuli that are mistakenly perceived as recognizable forms. A recent immersive installation by the artist, titled WITHDRAWAL, contains Backroom, a sound piece that sequentially intersperses two different audios at varying time intervals by means of double amplitude modulation (AM), creating a texture completely different from the original textures of both mother audios. The work refers to liminal spaces as it explores the moments where AM goes from being a perceptible rhythm to generating heights when performed at audible frequencies. The installation imitates a Backroom, which, according to users of sites like 4chan, are disturbing images of spaces in which something is not quite right. Julio’s work proposes a reconciliation with the intermediate spaces, loneliness, waiting and uncertainty.
