In most of my works I use video and photography. I like the strong and intense relation between sound and moving images in video as well as the precise composition’s mathematical stillness in photography. I combine perceptions from science and music and intend to experiment with the medium itself to create a vivid but well-organized world.
Structures of Two No. 1

In the series "Structures of Two" my aim is to create a mathematical structure based on symmetry and tessellation, which can express the relation between the figures. Each pair of image shows two different versions of a relation. The structures of the images are built up by opposites and parallels in which the movements of the figures and the space are strongly related.

István Orosz Hungarian graphic artist’s mathematically inspired works with forced perspectives and optical illusions gave me the idea to transplant this kind of graphic world into photography. M. C. Escher’s similar works to that of István Orosz and the fitting of the figures on the face-card had also effects on this visual world.

My aim is to create a world similar to the graphical inspirations mentioned above, which is also an experiment of how these artificial perspectives act in photography.

In the series "Structures of Two" my aim is to create a mathematical structure based on symmetry and rotation, which can express the relation between the figures. Each pair of image shows two different versions of a relation. The structures of the images are built up by opposites and parallels in which the movements of the figures and the space are strongly related.
