Description

In this work, the rotating elements allude to gaming and experimentation, as we have first learned during our childhood. In our adult life we tend to forget the meaning of gaming as a process of constant learning and generation of ideas. From the inventor’s prototypes or the mathematical combinations in a new theory to the various trials of an artist, game is part of our life as a creative process. The flat blocks of the work are painted as perspective three-dimensional objects and spin in random combinations, such as game by nature includes randomness, trial and error. The work surprises the viewer with its continuous movement, which nevertheless remains almost silent.

Currently in view at the exhibition Alex in Wonderland, ACT II, The Project Gallery, Athens.
