In 2010, he have a graduate internship at the Vilém Flusser Archive at the Universität der Künste, Berlin. Between 2017 and 2018, he was visiting artist-researcher at i-DAT (Plymouth University | U.K.) funded by CAPES/Brazil. From 2011 to 2018 he was professor of the Universidade Federal do Ceará | UFC where he co-founded of the Graduated Program in Arts - PPGArtes - UFC. Currently he is professor and researcher at Campinas State University - UNICAMP. He coordinates the "actLAB Laboratório de Pesquisa em Arte, Ciência e Tecnologia and is collaborator researcher of the CISC - Centro Interdisciplinar de Semiótica da Cultura e da Mídia (PUC/SP) , the Grupo de Pesquisa Fotografia, Imagem e Pensamento (UFRJ), and " "Laboratório de Pesquisa em Arte e TecnoCiência" (UNB). Having background in electronics and media studies, his interest is on the relationship between art, technology and society. The series of videos, photos, interactive installations and urban interventions produced by him place questions in some political, ethic and cognitive aspects of the insertion of the technology into the cultural practices and power structures. He is co-founder and collaborator of the collective CesarLois, that creates biohybrid" artworks in the intersections between the parallel networks of technology and biological systems. Cesar Lois consists of artists Cesar Baio and Lucy HG Solomon, with contributions from artists and scientists. His PhD thesis analyses experimental artworks, most of them produced with technologies such as virtual reality, augmented reality, interactive video, cybernetic systems and locative media, assuming a perspective of the art and media theories. This research aimed to comprehend how some of these artworks reshape the models of representations and, in doing that, they materialize forms of understanding the world that are different from the ones consolidated in traditional media. Seeking to demonstrate the heterogeneity of the sensibilities implied in these different modes of existence and functioning of the image, he proposes a post-virtual theoretical approach of image departing of the apparatus philosophy by Vilém Flusser, as well as, from the concepts of performativity, co-presence and embodied experience. The series of videos, photos, interactive installations and urban interventions produced by him place questions in some political, ethic and cognitive aspects of the insertion of the technology into the cultural practices and power structures. The most of his projects is based in procedures such as reverse engineering, occupation of information networks and subversion of the industrial devices and algorithms, aiming to reveal tensions in the human-machine relationship, encourage creative collective participation in digital platforms or speculate on alternatives forms to represent the world and to produce reality. Author of the book Máquinas de imagem: arte, tecnologia e pós-virtualidade (Machines of image: art, technology and post-virtuality), he has written papers that are published in academic journals and collections. He has participated in congress, seminars and exhibitions in Brazil and abroad. His activities have been commissioned by Brazilians federal agencies and prizes for research and art production.
