The re-configuration variations
Generative paintings.
2006
Stanza

[ link original]
[ link en NETescopio]

For this series of works, which Stanza calls generative paintings, the artist uses software which automatically combines and alters various masterpieces in real time without any intervention on the part of the spectator, creating a true remix of art history.
Confronting the underlying principle of the majority of classical art, the concept of timelessness, Stanza submits a whole gallery's worth of Western art to the rules of the digital domain. Forcing their constant mutation by means of his own algorithms, he converts these paintings into ephemeral, unique, and unrepeatable works.
