My works belong to computer generated abstract, mostly geometrical art. They are generated from the heart of computer, by computer programs that transform my ideas into images. This kind of computer art is called algorithmic art since images are generated using algorithms, i.e. procedures coded in computer programs that describe how an image will look like and how it is to be generated.
I create my own software and developed a visual “grammar” based on using elementary geometrical objects integrated into diverse spatial arrangements. I also work with digital manipulation of photographs using algorithmic manipulation of pixels within a photograph and thus transforming them from figurative to abstract patterns, and create abstract computer generated animation and sculptures.
I use computer as a powerful tool and a partner in the creative process. I also use mathematics in my algorithms, not to visualize mathematical objects but rather as a tool that enables me to develop an idea I have about the work I want to create.
