“All my 3D objects are afflicted with a degenerative disease.
Gripped by terror, they understand what fate awaits them.
Gradually they disintegrate, face after face they lose their appearance, with a fatal outcome.
In this way the 3D objects die.”
In this series I use a face reduction algorithm. A percentage defines the strength of reduction. 0 %, no reduction. 100 %, total reduction. Each stage is created mathematically.
Usually the “virtual” is in opposition to the “real”, in any case to the organic, it is enduring and doesn’t undergo any changes. I was interested in applying to the virtual, in an imitative way, irreversible mutations.
There is also a play on perceptions; to see how the viewer distinguishes and puts the images back together, giving meaning to abstraction. Helped by previous images, the mind can recreate the original object from the few remaining polygons.
