The repetition of gestures is repeated obsessively to the constant search for an escape route, which is to improve a company or take possession of it, in an increasingly fragile world dominated by the same alterations.

From 16-bit game developer to digital artist; his video experimentations applied to a passion for all things primitive as well as symbolism and anthropology.

Αll-time human need to represent the world and come to terms with it. And Igor Imhoff is surely no exception.
