This artwork is inspired by Philip Galanter and his paper “Complexity Theory as a Context for Art Theory” published in 2003. The intersection of arts and technologies was always one of the main things to investigate and this process is framing a specific mindset as any of longtime practices. Switching between abstract design and patching the artwork; between experimenting with visuals and thinking about the practice and the artwork is something very familiar to a meditation. I find this similarity because of oscillations between different levels of consciousness and being in several states of mind in the same time.
I had panic attacks and have anxiety issues so I’m using meditation as a practice to find harmony between chaos and order of how I percept life. And this process can also be seen as coding of inner algorithms. And yes, it is more like a creative coding where you experimenting and designing at the same time. By creating this artwork I’m visualising this process and trying to think about it through generative art.
