Alfredo Salazar-Caro (@a_salazarcaro) works at the intersection of portraiture, installation, virtual reality, video and sculpture. Recently his work has focused on exploring the way that virtual simulation can affect someone’s perceived reality, for example by creating simulations in which one is forced to endlessly roam in a desert until death. Other examples include simulations of dreams, dreamscapes and memories, as well as videos of extreme fantasies fulfilled digitally. Alfredo hopes to one day live forever as a computer simulation. His work has been exhibited in cities including New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, London, Berlin, Amsterdam, Caracas, Shiraz, and Mexico City among others and has been featured in publications including Leonardo, New City, Art F City and CreatorsProject. He lives and works between Mexico City, New York, Chicago and the Internet.
