“New technologies have a special impact on our daily lives in any field. They are infinitely diverse in shape and content, swinging between translating the real space into a virtual one that finally gets contaminated with these subtle, invisible interferences
– This subtle contamination develops a multitude of information and suggestions that seem chaotic at first sight but, looking closer, they will reveal a complex mathematical algorithm.
– The illusion of the virtual spaces is also related to a series of real spatial shapes which can be translated into complex mathematical formulas like, for example, the relation between Pascal’s triangle and Fibonacci’s sequence.
Every number in this triangle represents the sum of the two numbers above. The triangle starts with number 1. Following this example, the 3D space can change into bidimensional and viceversa.
– The result will be a complex series of spatial or bidimensional shapes, colours can be translated into numbers, numbers into reality and optical illusion.
– Thus a continuous movement appears, that hypnotizes the viewer. Hypnosis makes him/her confuse real or virtual existent space with the imaginary shapes created by the optical illusion, the mathematical algorithm translated by the artist into image.
Mathematical conformism will not be considered a mere sterile convention refusing to acknowledge truth. The supreme condition of numbers is the reality lived consciously or unconsciously, transformed into a world of hypnotic mirages or into an abstract, calculated, conscious space. These two different but complementary aspects do not exclude the intimacy or the essence from the sphere of the universal valid truth.”
Curator ׃ Associate Professor Dr. Gabriela Diana Bohnstedt Gavrilaș
