About the work: Ephemeral Void - Elements (Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space) Eastern philosophy is mainly based on the Classical elements. This series of works, “Generative Algorithm Art”, named, “Ephemeral Void, Elements” (Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space) is inspired by the above philosophy. This project explores the aesthetic expression of the five elements, which are associated with manifestation of the five prime elements of nature. This abstract spinning animated particle visuals (Video) will be generated through digital manipulation of data, using synergy of each element’s video, sound, machine and code for my new work.
