    This painting is the product of an experiment of using hyperloop in the digital realm. It's an interactive piece, meant to be viewed using virtual reality gear so as to introduce each individual to the realm of my digital practice. Wearing the gear instead of seeing the analog two-dimensional projections shown here, the user can walk through the mesh and see the work progress. The goal of this piece is to automate the perception and deconstruction of structure. By creating algorithmic compositions using 3D software, the work demonstrates the evolution of traditional methods. The source code of this painting is right in front of us. It can be modified at any time, it can be destroyed, and it can progress, while access to the program and the original file can be easily lost. More of this video can be seen here:
