About the Artwork
Using screenshots taken every day for a period of ten minutes in May 2022, this work creates an infinite number of obfuscated images of the artist's digital workspace. Each composition fades over a period of thirty seconds and, once completely faded, will never be seen again. This is Dawes’s first real-time generative work, complete with a bespoke screen and specifically engineered machine at the back, where all one needs for the work to function and keep creating new images, is to plug the screen into electricity.
About The Artist
Brendan Dawes uses generative processes involving data, machine learning, and code to create interactive installations, electronic objects, online experiences, data visualisations, motion graphics, and physical sculptures.
An Alumni of the Lumen Prize and Aesthetica Art Prize, Dawes' work has been featured in exhibitions worldwide, including Big Bang Data in thirteen cities, and three shows at MoMA, New York; the latter acquiring artwork Cinema Redux for their permanent collection.
Dawes draws much of his inspiration from popular culture and nature, often revolving his work around concepts of time and memory. These analytical explorations interrogate our understanding of the surrounding world.
Following his Genesis NFT on KnownOrigin selling within the hour to legendary collector WhaleShark, Dawes released a collection on Nifty Gateway – selling out in under sixty seconds. He has also released work on MakersPlace, Foundation and SuperRare. His work has been auctioned at Sotheby’s Natively Digital: A Curated NFT Sale and Generative Art and The Future, an art exhibition in Shenzhen hosted by China’s largest auction house, Beijing Poly International Auction.
