Marpi

Bullseye shapes fade in and out, while subtly shaded cubes appear to dance. A closer look reveals the cubes to be part of slats or bands arranged in a horizontal grid over a deep black background. The bands rotate one way while the cubes twirl the other, producing complex evolving imagery. But it’s the interaction of the bands and cubes with the black background that creates the composition. The artist programmed patterns and applied them to small rotating pixel-like pieces, exploring algorithmic processes that govern the composition of the cubes and their movement.
