In the seventh week of the group exhibition “Glitch; Pixel Language »Platform 101, video art by Francesco Corvi. “Circular Binary” is a layered work of art that, over a period of time, creates complex mazes of consecutive lines with random structures accompanied by music.
This Glitch video art is made of both video and audio media. All materials are made of mathematical functions with programming tools. Its compositional approach is independent of a timeline in which the initiated process has an infinite duration, without ever repeating, and is a non-narrative evolution that invites the viewer to immerse himself in a meditative state.
Francesco Corvi (Nesso) is a Rome-based digital artist. His language is heavily influenced by the need to design complex systems that offer a wide range of unconventional creativity options. In his view, the programmer/executor has a continuous dialogue with the software that influences its behavior during the time and manages not only some parameters but also the structure of the algorithm itself.
Crovi attributes the choice and use of abstract images and sounds to the observation of geometric patterns in Islamic virtual art, as well as to the rich semantic and organic richness of those symbols that can be used for mathematical functions. This work was created during the artist’s isolation, and is due to his tendency to immerse himself in contemplative states by observing systems with very slow changes, as opposed to the very rapid flow of information from the media.
This was an important step for Corey in searching thoughtfully for algorithmic composition. Unlike his previous work, where images and sound were constantly evolving between chaotic dimensions and masses of new information. When designing a design, Corvi tries to start with attractiveness without defining precise structures and without setting rules. The end result is a continuous dialogue between the artist and the algorithm, like working with a human. He does not try to create a tool that does exactly what he commands, but a source of inspiration that works with the artist and suggests new possibilities and ways of the future.
Glitch Video Art “Circular Binary” in the form of a group exhibition “Glitch; Pixel Language »curated by Mohammad Ali Famori and Sadegh Majlesi in the space of 1- Bavan Gallery will continue until Thursday, February 11, 2021.
