21st November - 23rd December 2012

Fuelled by a fascination for exploring a visual paradox, for more than 20 years French artist Pascal Dombis has been charting new territory in the field of new media and computer art. Dombis has been using computers and algorithms to produce excessive repetition of simple processes. By computationally reproducing a geometrical or typographical sign, he creates destructuring structures and develops irrational environments. As a result there is a great paradox at the heart of Dombis’ work between orderly control of a simple rule and unpredictable results. The process is simultaneously random and mechanical, a machine creates the rule but the resulting artwork effectively takes on a life of its own.
