XXXX – Terrain
The XXXX - Terrain series comprises mesmerizing
3D renders derived from the original photographic series XXXX, crafted during my residency at the Renzo Gracie Academy in New York. The original series, XXXX, is housed in the Duke of Devonshire's permanent Chatsworth House collection, XXXX existed as physical, limited-edition, mono-lithographic prints. Now, the digital medium has enabled me to transform these artworks into dynamic video pieces, capturing the essence of the fight's movement on a novel, planetary visual terrain.
Each piece rotates on a distinct axis, influenced by variables within the image – including the point of contact on the mat, fight mode, and bodily movements. Accompanied by evocative sound scores composed by artist Daryl Brown, these digital artworks symbolize a new frontier. XXXX - Terrain
seeks to explore viewers' interaction with the visceral MMA ring landscape in
the digital realm, echoing the transformative nature of digital art.
