Study of the Modulation of Cubes
Spectral decomposition of light, machinima of generative application
The artworks in this series explore the convergence of analog and digital media: a wooden box contains an analog lens that deforms 3D images, which are projected by a screen inside. The spectral decomposition of light caused by the lens affects the perception of the modulation of the shapes. Thus, in these Studies of the Modulation of Forms, the movement of the observer and his point of view determine the appreciation of the work.
To create the animated content, Nourathar Studio developed a generative graphics application that allows real-time modulation of pure shapes - in this case cubes - with noise. The work presents the resulting machinima, as a sequence of moving inter-modulations floating within a space of unexpected depth. The movement of cubical forms echoes the morphological decomposition and recomposition, similar to an animated cubism that allows the analysis of these forms and all their possible perspectives.
