Athens Digital Arts Festival (ADAF) is an International Festival which celebrates digital culture through an annual gathering bringing together a global community of artists and audiences.
It may be an structure for everything
I do abstract but not exclusively.
I want my work to be away of any content, or at least exempt of a content that can be textualized.
I believe Art is another way of knowledge, and so I consider it to be more coherent if it is non linguistic.I reject any content that can be encapsulated in words.
All we can see normally at Art galleries are metaphors. With different rhetorical formulas, but in the end, everything is a metaphor. Metaphors and symbols. And I want to do something away from it.
Occasionally, I play with some cultural references, but this is always in a mocking way.
I feel very close to Dada; Dada not as a movement, but an attitude, as an understanding of everything.
I love Trash Culture and also Decorative Arts: in both cases because of the lack of pretension. “Sublime” is for me an archaic word.
In the end, my personal quest is to create an Art full of honesty, simplicity and grace.
I conceived this video as a piece of moving image, rather than audiovisual or film.
