The “Free Speech & Free Art” will be a free-standing form containing the original copies of more than 200 different digital artworks. A battery illuminated text on the form will inform the audience that the artworks inside it are offered for free.
For the past decade, I have been exploring the generative properties of language with a focus on the semantic net and the relationship between words and their many possible visual representations. As a result of my explorations I became the co-author of proprietary software combining a generator of English sentences and a visual composition builder that converts sentences generated by the software into abstract patterns (CIPO-Patent-2704163). My digital art reflects my passion for language and my mastery of digital imaging techniques. More specifically, I digitally manipulate generated by the software patterns and sentences and I use them to compose big abstract images that blend shapes, colors, and text. By introducing changes to each of the completed images I can create series of “offspring” images. Each offspring image is going to be printed only once and used for the realization of the “Free Speech & Free Art” project.
