Artist Statement:


    Touching is a very broad concept. In these images, lines are playing a game of touching, of near-touching, of avoiding, of seeking, of crossing and intermingling: a manifestation of the purity of the line and an invitation to meditate.

    Algorithmically generated drawings, drawn on a pen plotter, constitute a very small segment within the area of computer artwork. It is this small segment, however, which I find most fascinating. This has to do with the archaic notion of a mechanical extension to the drawing hand, unlocking a universe of machine-generated drawings utterly different from hand drawings.
