Paolo Cirio is a conceptual artist whose work, while often based on digital networks and presented on the internet, is more concerned with underlying social structures than with the affect and aesthetics of the internet. Cirio’s work tends to be text- and data- intensive. He targets the biggest multinational corporations out there: Amazon, Facebook, Visa, Google Maps, Twitter. And Cirio has gone for the jugular with each of them—he has scraped one million profiles from Facebook and posted them to a fake dating site (Face to Facebook, 2011); released tens of thousands of pay-per-view articles from major financial news outlets around the world, offering cash rewards to readers who successfully answered quizzes about them (Daily Paywall, 2014); and unveiled the legal identities of over two hundred thousand global companies using the Cayman Islands as a tax haven (Loophole for All, 2013). The pieces are often exhibited in some physical manifestation, as well as published online, where they enjoy a half-life during which the targets in question issue legal cease-and-desist letters and industry journals try to make sense of an “information performance artist” destroying the credibility and security reputations of major brands.
