Marco Barotti is an Italian musician and visual artist based in Berlin, Germany.
Barotti’s pieces of installation art merge audio technology, consumer waste and discarded objects into kinetic sculptures, frequently resembling animals and with strong environmental messages.
His work has been exhibited internationally, including at the NGBK Gallery in Berlin, Saatchi Gallery in London, and the Würth Museum in La Rioja, among many others. Marco was the winner of the 2019 NTU Global Digital Art Prize for Clams, a set of microtonal kinetic data-sonification sculptures.
At Loop 2020, Clams will be displayed in the entrance garden to the Kuppelhalle. The music and movement of each ‘clam’ will be created using live-streamed data from a water purity sensor in Berlin’s Spree River.
