The concept of dematerialization culminates in a subtraction piece. The process involves taking moments from the duration of time in a still photograph and abstracting them to the point of elimination of visible content. The idea is to reflect the ephemeral nature of our presence in life, which will ultimately return to the ashes.


The computer is used as a tool to decide how much content to remove, while the operator (the artist) decides which parts to eliminate and how much is enough. This approach can be considered authorless, as the final product is created with minimal authorial control. As an artist, I experimented and allowed a portion of the work to be created randomly or accidentally, which resulted in works that could not be replicated in exact appearance. This approach is a course of discovery, which can sometimes appear chaotic and unrecognizable due to the level of abstraction.
