transcending photography into a computer generated artform

mixed media - video loops and digital prints, 2016
WORK IN PROGRESS

 

In digital age image processing is omnipresent. Scaling, compression, pixel interpolation happens in endless forms to display our content correctly on the screen.
Yet, it's mostly overlooked which elegant character it may entail.
This project gives a new angle to some phenomenon that occur in such pixel-rearrangement and observes how software algorithms become the unaware creator of aesthetics and beauty.
