Tributes 2017; Glitched Artists

Tribute artworks for my favorite artists.

This project focuses on my interest in merging different forms of art and design in one, like using the clean minimalistic style and chaotic glitch aesthetics whilst still not losing grip of the main aspect and idea of the project.

Tribute 1;  Glitched Rene Magritte.

Magritte is without a doubt my favorite artist of all time, some of my favorite paintings are; Not To Be Reproduced, The Mysteries of Horizon, The Lovers, and Sixteenth of September.

References; Son of Man, Rene’s self portraits and The schoolmaster.



Tribute 2; Glitched Salvador Dali

References; Lincoln, Dali’s self portraits and the persistence of memory.


New Media Art is the Future.

I have been following the work of some great artists online who make stunning pieces of art ranging from visual  and media art, to light or sound illustrations, video mapping and audio-visual, so I thought of sharing some of my favorite projects for them.


• Kyle McDonald — Light Leaks.


Light Leaks from Kyle McDonald on Vimeo.

A scattered array of fifty mirror balls reflect light from three projectors, filling a room completely with small reflections, casting patterns that fill the visitor’s peripheral vision. Creating a curious space that alternates between a meditative state, and an uneasy imbalance. An experiment in combining a found object with computer vision to create a profound and unusual experience.

Created with Jonas Jongejan at CLICK Festival 2013.

•YCAM InterLap — mapamok.

An incredible video-mapping experiment done using built with open-frameworks.


マパモク/mapamok from YCAM InterLab on Vimeo.

マパモク / mapamok is an experimental projection mapping application that is part of the Projector Camera Toolkit developed during Guest Research Project v.1 at YCAM Interlab.

This video demonstrates a workflow for fast projection mapping involving: measuring and modelling the scene (5-30 minutes) followed by installing and calibrating the projector (5 minutes).

Because mapamok is built with openFrameworks, everything is rendered in realtime. This allows for the technique to easily be extended to interactive applications. Near the end, an example of an interactive sound+visual mapping is shown.

•Kyle Evans —  Transmission Archaeology.

Digital visual piece done with video transmission and algorithmic computer composition with beautiful electronic sounds.



•Nicolas Bernier — Frequencies (Light Quanta).


frequencies (light quanta) from Nicolas Bernier on Vimeo.

A structure is generating tridimensional patterns superimposing 100 transparent laser cut acrylic panels. Each acrylic panels is engraved with vectorial graphics inspired by quantum physics. The panels are edge lit and individually controlled by a computer-based algorithm allowing to create random physical animations by turning each panels on/off while syncing them with short sound bursts. This metaphorically cinematic method allow to freeze and combine every single frames of the100 available, creating a multidimensional visualization method.


•Refik Anadol — Infinity Room.


Infinity Room – [TIEE] from Refik Anadol on Vimeo.

Infinity’ is an immersive environment project by Refik Anadol. Project is an integral part of artist’s ongoing ‘Temporary Immersive Environment Experiments’ which is a research on audio/visual installations by using the state called immersion which is the state of consciousness where an immersant’s awareness of physical self is transformed by being surrounded in an engrossing environment; often artificial, creating a perception of presence in a non-physical world.

Light is the major element in the experiment, used to blur and interconnect the boundaries between the two realms actual/fictional and physical/virtual. It signifies the threshold between the simulacrum space created by the projection technology, and the physical space where the viewer stands. The experiments will discuss the inherent spatial qualities of immersive virtual environments and their effect on the embodied person.

أخطاء في مدونة بصرية /Errors in a Visual Diary; 2015

“A year here and he still dreamed of cyberspace, hope fading nightly. All the speed he took, all the turns he’d taken and the corners he cut in Night City, and he’d still see the matrix in his dreams, bright lattices of logic unfolding across that colourless void.”

—William Gibson, Neuromancer.

















All images are mine from a project called أخطاء في مدونة بصرية /Errors in a Visual Diary. I took and broke all of them last year, 2015.
The project is inspired by William Gibson’s Novel “Neuromancer” , A visual diary broken and recreated to explore a dream-like state.
