concept art for '4'


“...to make a spatial experience out of his live act, like a musical theatre. That’s why I decided to use pseudo-architecture and ‘sacred-like’ monuments. I wanted to make some kind of an impossible landscape and navigate it. I tried to focus on Kalab’s musical concept of ‘Trimurti’, but translated into visuals: a golden pristine Brahma side referring to construction, a destructive dystopian ‘Shiva-glitchy side’, and the in-between, Vishnu the preserver, trying to keep monochromatic balance between both. I wanted to keep it dark and yet sacred. The unholiness of fractalised repetitions.”  -erre

"...hacer una experiencia espacial de su acto en vivo, como un teatro musical. Por eso decidí usar pseudo-arquitectura y monumentos de aspecto "sagrado". Quise intentar un paisaje imposible y navegarlo. Traté de enfocarme en el concepto musical de Kalab acerca de la 'Trimurti', pero traducido a visuales: un dorado y prístino lado Brama, refiriendo a construcción, una parte destructivay distópica, 'Shiva', y el intermedio: 'Visnú' el preservador, tratando de mantener un balance monocromático entre ambas. Quise mantenerlo oscuro, pero sagrado. Lo impío de las repeticiones fractales." -erre

I am totally lost when it comes to digital art. Don't get me wrong I enjoy looking at all the creations but when an artist explains how they do it I get lost big time.

Hi there. I feel the same way... I come from visual and plastic arts, so I approach my digital creation from drawing or painting. I am more worried in how it looks/feels than how the computer 'thinks' about it. This is the point where I do get lost... I am not a coder myself and I do feel that same way with Hyper-technological art. (Art involving hard-coding and electronics).
