As part of a years long journey of breaking apart and building anew in the field of digital photography, I developed a method where you can grasp the reality around us in a way that divides it into foundational blocks or pixels in a 3D space, in order to create material uniformity which represents the unity between all the facets of life and the objects which create our reality. How much of the nature of objects is limited by their shape? Do autonomous machines have the ability to see the beauty in things?
