Oil on canvas

The painting's blueprint is a product of an algorithm that merges nine photos arranged in a grid which then undergo a vertical pixel displacement. This process generates trails that produce a fading effect, capturing the transition of individual moments into a unified memory.

Driven by code and computer-generated randomness, this technique reveals a delicate balance between intentional composition and serendipitous occurrences—a controlled yet unpredictable interplay. Allowing the algorithm to steer the composition intentionally embraces a procedural outcome, prompting reflection on artistic control and authorship in an increasingly technology-driven world. In navigating between the realms of code and painting, this reversed digital-to-analog process restores a sense of authorial agency.
