Sean Capone

Geometric shapes fold, loop, and form abstract combinations, like origami in action. Contrasting colors, textures, and patterns converge into reflective surfaces of shifting light and shadow on a starry black background. Capone created this as a generative artwork, so that each instance was unique, but chose a singular looped sequence for this video. The artist mediates spontaneous computer-generated gestures, choosing where and how to intervene and alter them: technology-enabled digital improvisation. Capone is inspired by early abstract art that aimed to translate the expressiveness of sound and spirituality into visual compositions. In this 21st-century approach to that style, he’s fashioned an ever-changing kaleidoscope of rotating forms.
