Biography and CV
Key facts
2016 He obfuscated over 15 million mug-shots and criminal records of individuals arrested in the U.S. to introduce a new Internet privacy policy.

2015 He stole photos of high-ranking U.S. intelligence officials from social media and disseminated them onto public walls with HD Stencils.

2014 He stole 60,000 pay-per-view articles from financial newspapers and redistributed them with a paid-to-read schema with his own newspaper. The largest publishing company in the world shot down the artwork.

2013 He exposed over 200,000 Cayman Islands companies and attempted to sell their identities in order to democratize tax and legal shields. As a result, several global firms sent him legal threats.

2012 He stole data from Twitter and rated the political affiliation of one million Americans to raise awareness about citizen profiling.

2012 He illegally affixed life-sized photos of people found on Google Street View on walls of several cities, generating worldwide press.

2011 He stole one million profiles from Facebook and republished them on a dating website. Several global mainstream media covered related threats against the artwork.

2010 He gave away thousands of illicit VISA credit cards with counterfeited virtual money to introduce wealth redistribution by his monetary policy.

2010 He branded a firm that capitalizes on sea level rise in NYC and created characters who fight for climate change justice, triggering a 'fiction' that manifested itself in reality.

2009 He cloned the identity of a Russian spy on social media. By this espionage activity, he created a 'fiction' scattered over several media channels.

2007 He created an online platform to debug the script of Security Theater, the PSYOPS program for antiterrorism measures in international airports.

2007 He spread thousands of misquotations through a mock website of quotes remixed constantly with different historic authors.

2006 He stole digital books from Amazon.com and redistributed them for free. The firm declined to respond to embarrassing inquiries from the press.

2005 He created a bot to defraud Google for buying its shares. The company sent a cease-and-desist letter to curb his activity.

2004 He occupied streets with Flash Mobs and asked to dozens of artists to vandalize public spaces with artworks.

2003 He created and edited a web portal with over 1000 articles about the eastward expansion of NATO and Operation Enduring Freedom, becoming a main resource for international anti-militarism.

2002 He organized participatory DoS attacks against NATO's official website. He was investigated by the Departments of Defense of both the U.S. and Canada.
Paolo Cirio works with information systems that impact the dynamics of social systems. Cirio's artworks investigate fields such as privacy, copyright, finance and law affected by communication networks. He shows his conceptual works through prints, installations, videos, online performances and interventions in public spaces.
