In the eye of the fly on ice

I disassemble, layer, and partial-multiply algorithmic patterns. Thereby emerges a complex structural, which I superpose with artificial or natural textures and turn this into a sophisticated surface by means of distortion and exposure to light. The entire process is driven by inner voice, which leads me through. I call it Digital Surface Art. Digital Surface Art is an advancement of algorithmic art and made entirely with software. It is not art of chance, but art of choice. Digital Surface Art is abstract and non-representational. That said it is self-governed and does not reproduce definite and apparitional reality. Digital Surface Art opens space for imagination of the beforehand unimagined. As a medium I use aludibond (lamdaprint), which gives Digital Surface Art a stunning physical appearance. Each print has my personal Signature and remains an unicum. I am born in Munich in 1980, Germany. I am Bachelor of Cognitive Science and am becoming Master in Advanced Management. Art was always my passion. When I was young I used to paint black structurals on white varnished wood. Then I discovered Video Feedback Art for myself. A video camera is pointed at its own monitor, so that the monitor virtually shows itself. This loop causes abstract patterns in motion, which can be enhanced by mirrowing, inversion and additional interferents. In 1997 I first started with Digital Surface Art, which I am the originator of. It`s a long time ago, to be sure, and I have learned a lot since, but I am still learning. That said my style is still in development and search for a perfect Surface A composition of mine is not pre-determined, but is developed during the process. I use the tools at my disposal and just do it. When you paint a woman sitting on a chair, the painting is then a representation of the woman sitting on that chair. Digital Surface Art has no such connection to the real world. It creates another reality, which does not exist beforehand, though Digital Surface Art can sometimes be compared with microscopic recordings of some material. Still it is non-representational as this matter does not really exist. I prefer the non-representational worlds, because in them much more is possible than in the representational.
