“FLUID” — Artificial beings, ink, and gravity
The starting point for the fluid series have been photographs of organisms taken from nature, serving as an ‘action space’ for cell cultures of synthetically generated life. Following the completion of these data graphs, they are subject to a process involving real, flowing ink. The digital work erodes under the impact of gravity on the ink. The sequence of this process is captured in photographs. One of the number of photographs is selected and printed with pigment ink on hand-made laid paper. What looks like painting, is in fact photography. The ‘digital fauna’ has continued to evolve. New beings, organisms, have emerged.
