The Screen

Animation, 2023

"The Screen" is a digital animation that explores the paradox of authenticity within our digital age. Set in a manually-crafted pixelated landscape, a vertical screen emerges among a group of trees, displaying an abstract interpretation of a tree composed of continuously shifting squares, resembling pieces of a puzzle. As it takes center stage, overshadowing the intricate details of the natural surroundings, this screen serves a dual purpose: it is an integral part of the larger composition and a standalone artwork titled "The Tree", offering a further exploration of the magnetism of digital representations. It is an artwork within the artwork.

Drawing inspiration from the insights of thinkers like Jean Baudrillard, Umberto Eco and Gilles Deleuze, "The Screen" delves into the captivating allure of digital simulations, revealing the transformative power embedded within symbols, and exploring the profound consequences of our digitally rewired minds. Presented on a digital screen, the artwork derives nourishment from the interplay between the virtual and the real, provoking reflection on the intricate relationship between our digital experiences and the authenticity of the world that surrounds us.
