In these formal studies, geometric figures are cut, broken, divided, subdivided, colorized and finally ยซset to driftยปยฒ in an endless scrolling motion. The elements in each composition vary over time without ever reaching a final form.

Visual artifacts remind of analog electronics. Feedback loops undermine the accuracy of digital technology. As time passes, it is increasingly difficult to recognize the original composition: frame after frame, cycle after cycle, the image is dissolved into a landscape of liquid forms and oversaturated colors.

After having pursued harmony and balance, it is liberating to surrender and witness the carefully crafted compositions blend into a chaotic interplay of lights and shapes.

Drifting, la ยซdรฉriveยปยณ, is an ongoing dialogue with the machine, started as an exploration of an aesthetic system and turned into a journey of selfโ€“discovery.
