Roberto Cabot (born in Rio de Janeiro, 1963) is a Brazilian visual artist.

Career[edit]

Cabot is a painter, sculpture, musician. He started mixing the Internet with art in 1986 and from then on the Internet has been present in his work. In 2008 he had a big piece at the Martin Gropius Bau in Berlin where he created an installation that showed simultaneously several live images from webcams all around the tropics. With this installation he completed his series about the "Aleph". The aleph is an intercession point where all space and time are concentrated and has been beautifully described like that in Jorge Luis Borges' literature.

Roberto Cabot is in many public and private collections, including the MASP and MAM - Gilberto Chateaubriand, in Brazil, Deutsche Bank and Hoffmann, in Germany, and CAAM - Centro Atlantico de Arte Moderna, in Spain.
