Artist Statement:


    Duality (Balance) takes an abstract journey from one extreme to another and where in between reveals that the extremes are not so dissimilar. In this animation, a cube serves as the root of a transformation between the organic (natural) and the geometric (synthetic). Sometimes subtle, sometimes obvious, the animation progresses from flowing patterns to concrete shapes. The opposing relationship of organic/geometric and natural/synthetic mirrors objects, movements, and even cultural conditions of the world around us. is balance between these extremes, and, in the end, balance becomes as the two extremes are revealed to be one and the same. Organic/geometric and natural/synthetic: one does not exist without the other.
