Dario Srbic, born in the former Yugoslavia, lives in Berlin, Germany and London, UK. Dario started coding as a twelve-year-old and always felt that the machine was not merely executing the code, but also emanating an inexplicable sensuousness. Initially fascinated by the dark arts of algorithmic trading in the business world(s) he transitioned through philosophy into the equally dark sciences of algorithmic art. His current practice examines the embodiment of desire (arousal, pain, excitement) into code and expresses it in artificially (ready)made sculpture and performance. Dario holds an MA in Photography from Central Saint Martins and is currently studying for a practice-led PhD at Royal College of Art supervised by Professor Johnny Golding and Graham Hudson. Dario’s work has been exhibited in Science Museum - London in 2019, Angewandte Innovation Lab - Vienna in 2019, Austrian Cultural Forum - Berlin in 2019, The Victoria & Albert Museum's Digital Futures - London in 2018, Assembly Point and Asylum - London in 2018, MAK Museum - Vienna in 2017, and Seen Fifteen Gallery - London in 2016 amongst others. Dario’s work has been published in numerous publications, his MA thesis published in Journal of Philosophy of Photography, and his video work is held in Ursula Blickle Videoarchive.
