Sandro Canavezzi de Abreu

Sandro Canavezzi de Abreu (BR) is a Brazilian architect and media artist.

Sandro Canavezzi studied architecture and urbanism, and worked as an architect in Brasil. When he became curious about in new media interfaces embedded in urban settings, he conceived Synthetic Park in São Paulo, a cultural centre centrally located and connected to other parks in the world in an effort to share live events.

From 1997 to 2000, he took part in the IO_Dencies project organized by the group Knowbotic Research, for which he would set up a database for São Paulo (texts, images, sounds) conveying the urban experience. The processing of this information by technologies developed by Knowbotic Research enabled force fields between the different data to be visualized thanks to experimental interfaces. This project's goals were to facilitate involvement via the network and to offer tools for rethinking urban space.

During a residency at the Podewil contemporary art centre in Berlin, he started programming, and he collaborated with Ulrike Gabriel of Codelab-Berlin, a group interested in creating software and hardware within projects that view programming as an artistic material. During his residency, he put together M(n)EMO, a prototype of a physical interface based on his ideas about interactivity.
