The Value of Life

Tullio DeSantis, born in Reading, PA in 1948, graduated with an interdisciplinary major from Gettysburg College on a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship. Upon graduation, he moved to the west coast and, in the early 1970s, began exhibiting his artwork in galleries in San Francisco, Tokyo, the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES), while he was completing his MFA at the San Francisco Art Institute. Since his arrival on the west coast, he had been publishing his art and writing for the Rip Off Press, one of the premier underground publishers of that era.

After moving back to the East Coast, Tullio rented a studio in Chelsea, and mounted his first one-man show in New York at the Tradition Three Thousand Gallery in the East Village in 1987. By that time, He had received a Pennsylvania Council of the Arts grant for a collaborative project initiated with Keith Haring. DeSantis was one of the first writers to publish extensively on Haring while he was still an anonymous graffiti writer.

From the late 1960s through his death in 1994, poet Allen Ginsberg and Tullio DeSantis carried on a philosophical and aesthetic relationship yielding several poems and drawings. Tullio’s interest in collaborative art continued throughout the 1990’s, as he worked anonymously on the Internet in various art collectives. His work was reviewed in the Village Voice (All Hands off the Keyboard, 10/24/2000) and represented in the International Prix Art Electronica in 1999.

Since the turn of the millennium, Tullio has continued to produce and participate in a long list of collaborative Internet projects, including The Facebook Show, produced by the Detroit Museum of New Art, The Internet Archive, a multimedia art/science project with Pery Burge, who worked as artist in residence in the Thermofluids Lab of the University of Exeter, UK, and currently, a series of works in traditional and digital media produced in collaboration with artist Dee Shapiro.

Tullio is an Adjunct Professor of Art at Reading Area Community College. He also owns, with a partner, MindReflector Technologies, LLC, a brain-computer interface company specializing in neurofeedback, brain and mind training software.
