Not more than eight simple shapes are the basis of my recent work. They are almost all the time combined to a primitive human form. In rigid grids or in complex, abstract constructions. In black and white and in exuberant colors. With animations written in instructions to be executed by a computer, I can produce endless variations of possible images. As a photographer I 'take' or select pictures appearing and disappearing while the computer is running and saving images. A selection is sometimes printed on paper or a sequence is saved as a video.
My art can be viewed as a game with colored shapes and lines. The human form is the guiding, algorithmic principle. Calculated intuition and random rationality as temporary strategies to find a paradoxal balance between trust and surprise. I hope to catch a glimp of that moment when all of a sudden something appears in the continous confusion that we want or like to call a work of art.
This exhibition of not more than two days will present 12 prints, short video clips of 83 animations, one computer animation (Niku) and a display of 'work in progress'. For the first time some works based on a new set of basic elements will be displayed. Instead of simple blocks, only a few lines, a circle and some connection rules are used to produce again computer animations, videos, prints, drawings and drawing tools.
