Strata #3


Video installation that reimagines the ceilings of the Grand Théâtre de Bordeaux through computational methods. Composition, color-schemes and geometrical features of the Neoclassical frescos are analyzed by algorithms, gradually revealing new abstract formations. Delving beneath its iconographic appearance, the work celebrates new algorithmic and non-human aesthetics.
