About the artwork
FITC is an event for creative people with a boundless curiosity and interdisciplinary spirit. This image represents a meeting point between art, design, and technology with David, an icon of renaissance art, at the centre.
Within a simple frame, cascading typography coalesces graphically with a multi-faceted circular composition, an abstraction representing the golden ratio.
The frame delineates the fourth wall, the rendered view of David as real. Beyond the skewed frame the technological underpinnings of the form, represented by the wireframe object, is visible.
The depiction of both rendered-real and abstracted virtual suggests the multifaceted abilities of the creative individual, constantly balancing the two contrasts. David’s gaze implicates the industry; it is directed off-frame, on unexplored horizons. “
