POEM FOR LOA

2018

OVERVIEW :

Glitch poem inspired by Haitian proverb:
"Great Gods cannot ride little horses"

With glitch art, "digital wabi sabi", I explore the boundary between representation and abstraction. World of wild animal serves only as a point of departure, a pretext to shape inner motion, forces, energy, vision and mystery.The resulting composition remain suspended between representation and abstraction, between depth of the nature and the surface of the screen.Reduced mass of pixels reminds us what lies beneath the surface, beyond the screen. Screen is a laboratory of the Eye. Pixel is a new Clay.
