Exhibition Notes

Swiss artist and software developer Andreas Gysin uses algorithmic systems to build new worlds. His generative animations, including Mainframe 1 and Mainframe 2, feature what he calls “dancing” alphanumeric characters that spin, flash and ripple to form moving units.

“In these works, the characters displayed on-screen are not meant to form sentences or words but are used as geometric shapes that create compositions and movement in a sort of choreography,” Gysin explains. “I try to blend several layers into these compositions: rhythm, motion, macro- and micro-geometries and color. In real time, these compositions can evolve and vary indefinitely.”
