Artist statement

In my work, I am exploring different concepts of mathematics and computing. There is no better way of understanding such concepts than by implementing them yourself, visualizing them and visualizing variations of it. I do this by writing my own software that generates images. I implement algorithms to generate a pattern or a collection of geometrical shapes. Even with basic shapes and logic, complex-looking results can be made by using the power of iteration.

After I implement one idea, I change some parameters or some logic in the code in a quest for new variations. The effect on the result is sometimes surprising and beyond my capabilities to predict. It excites me to know that there are many variations out there that I have yet to discover.

Since every piece is generated by an algorithm, there are always several parameters that can be changed. This means that every image can be turned into an animation, by changing one or more parameters. You can find some of these animations on Instagram and YouTube (links in the footer).

I can also make unique artworks on request.
