Federico Clapis is a contemporary Italian artist who has developed his career in a unique way, working “undercover” producing viral videos on social networks and accumulating millions of followers and views. In September 2015, at the height of the media popularity, he decided to move away from pure entertainment and converted his online presence into a tool for the dissemination of his previously hidden artworks.
“The Mind’s Eye” is a new series from VICE in which we chronicle the creative process of a unique creator, artist, or craftsperson as they produce an original work. The result is a hybrid between a strangely-satisfying look into the technical processes of modern art, but also a portrait of the world’s leading creators, their lives, and their inspiration.
In this first episode of “The Mind’s Eye”, we’ll follow Federico as he explores technology and the human condition through the creation of his resin sculpture, “Touch Scream”.
